Default Do all presidents golf?

It's the Damn Ball.

10,000 hours of hitting the ball wrongly isn't going to produce champions, only sorry AZZ golfers who can repeat their crummy swings over and over and over.

Give me a person with 500 hours of the right kind of "practice" over the grinder of time any day of the week.
Gordon,

Thanks for sharing that...

It proves false my claim that practicing golf or tennis for a living is only for the young'uns...

I guess you don't have to be Tiger Woods or the newly-retired Andy Roddick to make a living at sports, since there are also other ways, too (like coaching, info-products, and so on)...

One day, I'm gonna have to learn how to golf... It seems all the presidents do it (both Republicrats and Democans)...!

(Out of the last 18 presidents, it seems the only ones who didn't play golf were Herbert Hoover, Harry S. Truman, and Jimmy Carter...)
