Handicap your enthusiasm

Good players,golf shorts and ryder cup pomp make Larry David sick

Southern California golf is ubiquitous in the television series ''Curb Your Enthusiasm.'' The weather is perfect, but a storm is always brewing when the lead character bumps against
the game's social norms. Whether he's facing country-club expulsion for not cleaning his locker or exile for precipitating a slow player's death, the star's passion for golf never wavers.We invited Larry David and his good friend Bill Scheft (staff writer for David Letterman and the nephew of legendary golf writer Herbert Warren Wind) for a round at Winged Foot. All afternoon, Larry's lanky strut and creative cursing could be recognised from two fairways over. Here, the co-creator of ''Seinfeld'' answers questions from Scheft.
