Dr. Jack Kevorkian - assisted suicide advocate and golf enthusiast - recently was out dispensing advice on the links.
"Hit it into the rough below the green," Kevorkian told U.S. Open competitors Saturday as they approached the treacherous 18th hole at Oakland Hills in Bloomfield Hills, Mich. "Why take a chance of landing in the sand? Don't play with the hole because you're playing with danger."Later, Kevorkian joked with a security guard about meeting golf legend Jack Nicklaus, who is playing his 40th and perhaps last Open.
"I'm going to walk up to Jack Nicklaus and tell him if you don't win, I'm here," Kevorkian said.
Kevorkian says he's played golf for about 10 years.
