One might imagine that it is fairly easy for superstars in one field of sport to pick up the ability to play other fields of sport with relative success … for the most part, that assumption may be correct. In the case of David Beckham, that assumption would be very incorrect … especially when talking about the sport of golf. Here are a few photos of Becks trying very unsuccessfully to play a game of golf in SoCal this past Sunday afternoon:
Now I’m no golfer myself but I really think that he is holding the golf club incorrectly, mebbe that’s why he seems to have so much difficulty hitting the ball properly? Poor Becks … he looks like he is having a devil of a time pretending to be a golfer. In his defense, tho, I suppose it makes sense that he wouldn’t know what to do with his hands while playing a sport … soccer is a foot only game … asking him to use his hands is prolly where his problem lies. Mebbe he should take up hacky sack instead. I bet he’d look far less sillly than he does in these photos.
