New Segment - Why You're not a Professional Athlete

Always been the guy at the rec that everyone wanted on their pick-up team?

Friends always bragged about how you could break 70 "regularly" in the local Friday game?

Stronger than most people at the gym?

Well, this segment is going to be focused to those people that think they have always had a shot at being a pro but really should wake up and smell the normalcy flowers. (I think this would be a great feature to run on Valentines Day for two reasons. One, you might be having a great day after some morning sex with your better half and this brings you back down to the mortal, unhappy level. The other, you might be single and grinding your teeth through this pointless holiday and this would just add baggage on your airline carousel).

Anyway, this is why you're not a pro golfer.

Kevin Na, the 24-year-old Korean-American is leading the Northern Trust Open after a bogey-free 66 today. Na, 5'11" and weighing in at 167 pounds, averaged 314 yards today at Riviera and isn't even in the top five on the day.

Yep, you're 250 yard rope down the middle is pretty much a palate cleanser to these guys lobster dinner.

More of these to come.
