Terroir . Wild yeasts. Elevation. Who knew these terms could apply to mezcal as easily as to wine. In fact, "the vocabulary of mezcal is more like the vocabulary of wine than spirits," explains Ron Cooper, the California artist who founded Del Maguey single-village mezcals 20 years ago when the beverage wasn't on anybody's radar. "We're talking about terroir , about mouth feel," he says. "We're talking about aroma, nose. " He can go on for hours, recounting the long history of mezcal made in remote villages hours off dirt roads.

Tiger's caddie almost fell into a lake. I'd say that pretty much sums up the U.S. team's showing at the Ryder Cup. ROB OSBORNE Manhattan Beach Help wanted: We are an outstanding organization looking for an experienced golf professional to be the next Ryder Cup captain. Must be a millionaire, as we pay expenses only. Must be willing to accept defeat as previous Cup captains did in 1995, 1997, 2002, 2004 and 2006. You will be working with 12 individuals with large egos, often traveling in private jets and an entourage of agents and swing coaches.

Now that ABC was smart enough to dump Dan Dierdorf, let's hope that they use only two men in the booth. We don't need John Elway and "the Boomer" acting as Monday morning, no, make that Monday night quarterbacks. RON COOPER La Crescenta

It was reported that Charles Barkley paid $200,000 to play golf with Tiger Woods. What wasn't reported was the rumor that Tiger offered $250,000 to not have to play a round with Sir Charles. Ron Cooper La Crescenta

Even my wife, who is not a real golf fan, couldn't get over the fact that Jeff Maggert's $1-million victory at La Costa was relegated to the third page by The Times.

Kobe Bryant stated that "he will try four or five different pairs of shoes" before he wears and in effect endorses a pair for a few million dollars. I suggest he try my Reebok Club C shoes, only $39.95 at most department stores. They look and fit great, and for this endorsement I will get zip, nada, nothing! Ron Cooper La Crescenta

Finally a real golf course: Winged Foot, site of the U.S. Open. The pros are finding out what it's like to play a real test, not some Palm Desert course where 35 under might win. By the time you read this, two or three under might be the 36-hole leader. We hackers love watching this ordeal for these millionaire pros. RON COOPER La Crescenta

Here is something you'll never see again. One more look at last place in the scores at Pebble Beach: 296 (+8) $10,600: Phil Mickelson 72-71-73-80. I'll guarantee you the next time you see Phil Mickelson in last place in a golf tournament, the L.A. Dodgers will win the World Series, the Oakland Raiders will beat Tampa Bay, the U.S. will win the Davis Cup, and the president of USC will actually return a phone call from T.J. Simers.

Do you ever wonder who is more stupid? Jered Weaver, now holding out for $6 million, or the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, refusing to offer Weaver more than $5.25 million? The difference of $750,000 is pocket change to Angel owner Arte Moreno. Weaver could end up on a team with nowhere near what the Angels have to offer, namely a good shot at being in the next World Series. I suggest Weaver and Angel GM Bill Stoneman get real and cut a deal. Ron Cooper La Crescenta

Wow, the greatest thing since the invention of frozen orange juice! Yes I'm talking about John Madden joining Al Michaels on "Monday Night Football." ABC finally gets it right. I stopped watching "MNF" when Dennis Miller entered the booth. The only Miller I wanted came in a can. I'll guarantee ABC that I and thousands of others will be watching Michaels and Madden, even if it's a lousy game. This combination will be as good as any, including Jim Nantz and Ken Venturi. I know I'm right when I read T.J. Simers knock Madden when he states, "Madden has a made a career of dumbing down football."

What a pleasure to see Paul Azinger's golf victory in Hawaii. What was an equal pleasure to hear his gracious remarks in a victory over cancer. TV announcer Roger Twibell hit the nail on the head when he said, "We try to be neutral, but how can you not root for Azinger to win?" RON COOPER La Crescenta Tiger Woods is an amazing athlete and will dominate his sport as long as his back holds up. However, Tiger did not play in last week's Sony Hawaiian Open; therefore, any streak is over and done.

Kudos to Thomas Bonk for his Tuesday article on the now infamous "Battle of Bighorn" golf match. Bonk writes, "If the setup sounds complicated, the golf wasn't. It just wasn't very good." Matter of fact, consider yourself a real golf fan if you stayed awake to watch all 19 holes! If one purpose was to introduce girls to women's golf, then watch the renewed interest in girls' soccer. I've seen better golf in our Pasadena Senior group with wives invited for some mixed foursomes. Ron Cooper La Crescenta Holding a golf event in the desert in July, the hottest month of the year, is absolutely insane.

Boy, did Lee Janzen miss the boat! He should have asked his lawyer to file for an immediate injunction allowing him to continue to play while the courts decided whether he was unfairly singled out for violating Rule 13-2. After all, if the courts are going to be able to change the rules of any sport should they deem them unfair for any reason, then it is worth a try on Janzen's part. He really couldn't avoid dropping that towel on the wet grass after he mopped his brow. Gee, it was really hot out there!
