At the completion of his round, one handed his caddie, an elderly Scotsman, a generous tip."Thanks very much, your Excellency," said the caddie. "And I hope your head feels better."AMY ALCOTTAmy Alcott is one of the great characters in women's golf -- or in all of golf, for that matter. Not the least of her attributes is a wicked sense of humor and a great sense of comic timing. One day she called a writer friend to tell him that she'd just been named the top female Jewish athlete in the United States."Congratulations, Amy," the friend said. "That's great. Who'd you beat?""Some fencer from Brandeis," she deadpanned.
