PGA Honorary President highlighted in Rose's top-10 on Letterman
Series: Golf Buzz

When you're the U.S. Open champion, you make the media rounds. Justin Rose is learning -- and seems to be enjoying -- that with his media blitz in New York City (some of which was highlighted in this space yesterday).
Part of that New York City tour on Monday and Tuesday included a trip to the Late Show with David Letterman, where Justin Rose read the top-10 list.
The list was entitled: "Top Ten Questions People Ask Me About Golf"
One item that popped out to us here at PGA.com was No. 3:
"Can you get me an autograph from PGA Honorary President Allen Wronowski?"
Simply awesome. Wronowski is one of the kindest, funniest and most approachable people in golf and it was great to see him get a shout-out from Rose on Letterman.
While I don't have a Wronowski autograph, I have been honored to spend time with him over the last several years and we've developed a friendship that I cherish. He's a great jokester.
In fact, just a few weeks back at the Senior PGA Championship presented by KitchenAid, Wronowski left the most random of notes on my laptop in the media center -- and that's what made it so funny.
It read something like:
"Remember -- a glass is never half empty. It's always full. You just have to figure out what percentage of that is air."
Where can you beat that kind of wisdom?
Anyway, here's a taste of some of the top-10 list presented by Rose on Tuesday night:
10. "There is regular golf, there is miniature golf - how come no giant golf?"
9. "Why don't all balls have dimples?"
8. "Does Obamacare cover the yips?"
