Perfect setting for Mickelson-Woods match
Doesn't Shadow Creek Golf Course in Las Vegas have its roots connected to Steve Wynn, who recently resigned from his position amid sexual-harassment allegations over a number of years from multiple women?

At first, I didn't think the setting for the Phil Mickelson-Tiger Woods match sent the right message (“In the news,” Aug. 23). But when I really think about it, and think about their off-tour careers, isn't this a perfect setting for a Phil-and-Tiger combine? 

Professional golf meets reality TV.

Seeing through the hype
The PGA Tour’s FedEx Cup playoffs are just additional tournaments on the schedule to make the players money, and that's it.

When the majors are over, the season is over. Next year, that will be the third week in July – yes, barely through half the calendar and the season will be over.

It’s amazing how the Tour tries desperately to get us excited over its players – already millionaires, for the most part – winning more.

It’s no big deal, and as Joe Hughes points out (“From the Morning Read inbox,” Aug. 23), projecting is a joke.
