    I bet Dante's happy that he doesn't have to run much.

    Yes, Ruth played a lot of golf, and played still more after he retired. However, I can't believe he was the kind of player to work on his putting. He surely hit bombs off of the teebox, but his short game probably wasn't any more than most. That is all conjecture.

    What is not conjecture is the golf game of John Smoltz. Per this article link below, Tiger can vouch for what Smoltz can do on the course. He is able to play with the pros in pro-Am tournaments, and he enjoys playing in charity events as much as his schedule allows. Here is the link:
