You don’t necessarily need to be intellectually smart to play good golf, which is true of most sports. You just need to get the fundamentals of the swing down, learn how to chip and pitch, and figure out how to read and execute putts. Any moron can do that. You don’t need a college degree […]
Go, Jordan, Go!
