Paul Michael Glaser, the actor who became famous playing Starsky in the iconic TV series, "Starsky and Hutch," has been accused by his ex-wife of blowing a fortune on golf while refusing to kick in his share of his daughter's tuition.

According to legal docs obtained by TMZ, Glaser has refused to pay 1/2 of his 16-year-old daughter's tuition for private school ... Paul's share is just shy of $11,000 a year.

Paul's ex, Tracy Glaser, says he has refused to ante up.  Paul has argued the court excused him from having to pay, but she says that's b.s.

And Tracy says, Paul is more than able to pay his share, noting that in a recent 6-month period, he spent $12,800 on golf.

And, what further infuriates Tracy is that Paul's lawyer told the judge he would have to spend more than $7,000 in attorney's fees defending this claim.  So she says why not use that money to pay for his daughter's education.

Glaser's lawyer had no comment.
