FOR JULY 27, 2015
It's hard watching Tiger's game deteriorate (POINT AFTER), but it was almost predictable. Golf is a game of consistency and repetition. He's been through nearly half a dozen swing coaches since his professional debut in 1996, each of whom has changed his swing.
I think your article on the British Open did a disservice to Zach Johnson, the actual winner. The story should have focused on what Johnson did to win, not on what Jordan Spieth failed to do.
Thomas E. Carr, Santa Fe
We all would have loved to have seen Spieth pull off the triple by winning his third major of the season. However, having a stand-up guy like Johnson grind out a victory in an exciting playoff was a great substitute.

While Rex Chapman's drug addiction is tragic, nine thefts, with convenient memory loss after each one, and all from the same Apple store, smells of rotten apples.
David J. Gross, St. Augustine, Fla.
I commend Seth Davis for his story about Chapman's journey from decorated hoops star to struggling addict. He did a tremendous job detailing both Chapman's glory days and his pitfalls.

When I saw your Darrelle Revis cover, I immediately recognized the layout from the original, and I pulled out my copy of it with Joe Namath from 1965. I was only six at the time, but I was already a fan of SI. Glad I kept my copy!

While I'm not that familiar with Madden NFL 2004, I don't buy your declaration that the game's cover boy, Michael Vick, is the most dominant sports video game character of all time. Anyone who grew up in the original Nintendo era knows that Bo Jackson in Tecmo Super Bowl was an automatic touchdown.
