Tune in to Online 'Office Hours' about the culture of golf. Every year, 20 million Americans play at least one round of golf on one of the country's estimated 17,000 golf courses. The prevalence of the game, combined with the media storm over Tiger Woods' affairs, caught the eye of Duke cultural anthropologist Orin Starn, who wrote about the American golf culture in his new book "The Passion of Tiger Woods." In a live, "Office Hours" webcast interview, Starn answers your questions about the social, political and economic significance of golf. For more info, visit the Office Hours website.
