ANDY RODNEY o pinions HvraldZtitung Dave Editor and General Manager Susan Managing Mike Royko NY golf course presents some natural hazards The it has always seemed to me that the designs of most golf courses in this country are all Unlike the ancient golf courses in where golf was ours are not And thats especially true of the which make a golf course In the hazards are The the the roll of the the thick are all a part of the original In other a Scottish golf course looks like But can tnat be said about our courses Are sand bunkers natural to Chicago Or big and little ponds and winding streams Rolling hills Of course Theyre So I was pleased to discover that in at least one part of this there are golf courses with hazards that truly reflect the natural These are the 13 municipal golf courses of New York If you read the sports you might have come across a recent New York Times report on the unusual hazards of that citys For those who Ill summarize After hitting a tee a New Yorker might walk down the fairway and exclaim Im in a hazard A bunker Not It could be the trunk of an abandoned stolen Theyre dumped on the courses all the in the he might say I think I have an unplayable Do I get a free lift from there A cart path It could be that the ball had landed on or near a sleeping many of whom snooze about the fairways and Or in the tent of one of the many vagrants who call the course Or it might have even come to rest on a Those who have an urgent need to dispose of corpses frequently choose the golf courses for this The article didnt say what the rule is for a ball on or near a Do you drop it two club lengths away Or two bottle lengths In the case of the do you move the ball or move the body Is a casual corpse considered the same as a casual water But those are just examples of the stationary The movable hazards are what give the course their true For you get out of your golf cart and walk to the green to After you look up and see your cart with bag and clubs fading into the being driven toward the streets of Queens by some enterprising Or you might be walking along a fairway and see somebody emerge from a When confronting a a friendly will usually say or Nice or How you hitting them or something of the But its possible that hed put his hand in his pocket and say Your and the And the And the if it aint New York golfers have returned ho after a Sunday round and said you should have seen I really had it going until the 16th I was a cinch to break Then it all came You sliced one This guy said hed slice Thats why some New York golfers carry more than an extra wedge or 7 wood in their Some carry cans of Mace or A few bring companions to stroll along with them such as mean Unusual questions of etiquette have arisen on New York When delayed by a slow group its acceptable to politely ask if you can play But there is a tactful way to ask to play through a couple of rival gangs having a brawl on your fairway I suppose you could use flattery and s ay you have a smooth young Excellent follow Tell what is the swingweight of that piece of the hazards have been somewhat reduced by new management of the But they still retain much of their natural And the odds for a hole in one are much greater than for a hole in the I I SOYOUTHINK AS LONG OURAIPIS AS U3AKK AFRICA USES W PRIVATE IM 6LAPTO HEAR mWORKWRe FRAHK YOU OK UWTKIM THEWE ABOUT OFWMOZ

as Were not at No matter how wrong we think someone elses we have no in clination to try to stop them from believing what they Its been interesting for Catholics and nonCatholics alike to watch the activist Pope John Paul II at Hes been an amazing representative for Hes been accepted everywhere and admired by non Catholics as well as Im not a but Ive ad mired the pope more for the strength of his convictions and the energy with which he promotes them than for the convictions Catholicism hasnt had as good a leader as Pope John Paul II in many Now hes gone too I read the other day that hes going to write a newspaer Come on Does Art Buchwald hear confesssions Does Jack Anderson say mass Im broadminded but when the pope starts working my side of the I According to the story I the popes column will be syndicated by the Australian Rupert I wonder if the pope has ever read one of Murdocks One of the popes loyal followers ought to tell him that Murdocks publications lean heavily on crime and I dont think the popes going to be happy to have his column sand wiched in between a lurid story of rape on one side and murder on the If a newspaper decides to buy the popes column from the Murdock I suppose that paper might gain some Catholic readers but it might lose an equal number of nonCatholic readers who resent being Im not sure whether all Catholics are going to like having the popes column in their The Catholics I know believe strongly in the separation of church and real They go to church on their new Saturday but once mass is over they distance them selves from the The chances no parish priest is going to like having the pope in his paper three days a The clergymen in local churches all over America have always been vaguely resentful of people like Billy Graham and the radio and television preachers who skim off a lot of the money that local ministers might otherwise find in their church collection If Catholics can read the pope in their maybe they wont bother to go to church to listen to their The pope is a great Although his native tongue is he is said to be able to speak eight languages with some Hell try Wherever he goes in the which is almost he makes at least some of his speeches in that countrys native Im not inclined to give him of the newspapers who will carry his column any advice but it might be interesting if the pope spent a little extra time and wrote his column in four or five The newspapers who carry his column could choose which language to print him in or they could print the same column in three or four It will be interesting to see what the pope comes up with for Im sure he doesnt want any advice from me but he ought to be aware that if you have to do it three times a its awfully easy to make a fool of yourself once in a
