Ask Dr. Notebook

Q: I love the smell of Turf Builder in the morning. And lumpy men in plaid make me weak. Can I make a career out of my favorite things?

A: Let me count the ways! But your best bet: in September, Scotland's St. Andrews Links (the birthplace of golf), in conjunction with a nearby college, will offer Caddie Connect, the world's only college course in club assistance.
