It goes on through Sunday at Riviera Country Club near Los Angeles. Eldridge (aka "Tiger") Woods, the great Asian-American golfer, won't be there. But the world's #2 and #3 (Mickelson and Singh) will be. Here's what you need to know:

1. No cameras/recording devices allowed Thursday-Sunday. Tourney spokesman told me they WILL search w/ metal detectors and make you leave/check in such evil instruments.

2. No cellphones or pagers or anything that makes noise. The PGA is more concerned about use of images, though, than noise, and they are afraid of cellphone cameras/video.

3. Bring your own food or be gouged. The only "food" available is the world's smallest, lousiest hotdogs at $5.00, or the world's smallest, lousiest mini-sancwiches at $5.00. You can also get small candy bars at $3.50, or mini-bags of potato chips at $3.50. You want "real" food, or something healthy like a banana or apple? Can't buy it at the Riviera.

4. VITAL: Bring your own water, or be gouged. THERE IS NO FREE WATER ON THE COURSE. According to my own observation, according to the PGA spokesman, and according to what on-course staffers told me yesterday. If you're wealthy, you can buy mini-bottles on the course, at $3.50 for a pint.

5. Bring a headwrap. Weather is warming up. And if you faint from dehydration (see #4 above) you can use it to bandage up whatever you break when you hit the cement walking path. For that matter, perhaps you should wear a lightweight bicycle or rock-climbing helmet, to save you when your cabeza hits the pavement.

6. Do not bring a folding chair/stool. They won't let you take it out on the course. If you're elderly or have bad legs, tough luck; you're not welcome.

7. Bring lots of money if you want souvenirs. Souvenir polo shirts ~ $50+, baseball caps $20, knit caps $20, etc.

8. Keep your admission pass/receipts. The refusal to provide free water is, I am informed, illegal as h..l under both state and L.A. County law. I wouldn't be surprised if some attorney notices and forces the PGA/Riviera Country Club to cough up money.

Weather should be beautiful through the weekend. Enjoy the tourney!

1. I had a typo. It's the GOLF tournament, not "Gold" tournament.

2. I posted because many of our learned colleagues here shoot sports and other subjects as well as girls. In fact, I ran into a glamour shooter at the tourney yesterday (cameras are allowed through today). And my warning is, for many people, life and death; dehydration can cause severe health problems, and fainting from dehydration can cause a busted arm, leg, and skull, any of which would affect glamour picture-taking and many other skills. I am also helping save my colleagues from financial harm, $28/gallon for water is larceny.

3. As for glamour, what could be more glamourous than smiting a tiny ball the length of 3 football fields?

...How about a 67 lb. King Salmon on the end of my fly line?
