Just lose one for The Gipper
The idea of pulling for a member of our Ryder Cup team to fail is "reprehensible” (“From the Morning Read inbox,” Oct. 31). Seriously?

But it's OK for 62 million people to pull against the president of the United States because their candidate didn't win? Calling him names under the protection of the First Amendment is not "reprehensible"?

I'm Catholic, but I always – always – pull for Notre Dame to fail, regardless of the sport (even against Duke). I guess that's "reprehensible," too.

Aim small, miss small
Here's a solution to the putting wars: reduce the diameter of the hole for the pros from 4¼ inches to 2 inches (“Golf’s new rules could turn pros into cons,” Oct. 30). It'll take quite a while for them to figure that out, even with slope books.

Faster play? There’s only one way
Timothy Vice might play faster if he has a proper green-reading book (“From the Morning Read inbox,” Oct. 31).

The only thing that would make professional golfers play faster is to add strokes to their scores. Bring on the clocks.
