iguana, you remind me that in high school I was able to drop Phys Ed by going out for the golf team. This required that instead of 45 minutes of dodgeball or archery or rope climbing twice a week, I would walk the approximately 1.5-2 mile length of the nine hole course while shooting my vastly over par best, losing a few balls in the water and coming home drained from the experience most days, as the course, outside a small Nebraska town, generally was plagued by stiff winds. The early months of the spring season were particularly unpleasant!
But still, it was out of the gym, out of school and kind of fun. It would have been more fun if I had gotten some coaching!
The two brothers who were the backbone of the team, both state champions and both later pros for a number of years, were track and cross-country runners and basketball players as well as golfers.
I must say watching the great ones on TV inspires some kind of amazement: firing a two-inch hardball hundreds of yards by swinging a stick at it, and with the accuracy of a rifle? Astounding at times. Then the same muscle control goes into tapping that ball 35 feet across grass to a hole no larger than those on a billiard table ...
As for fitness, I'm obliged to re-post this shot I offered on the "butt" thread, plus a couple more:
Francesco Molinari in front, but who is the hot guy behind him?!
Young Oliver Fisher ...
