That it true, we do not know it to be fact. That said it is probably a 99% chance he is not a gifted athlete. He has probably trained 4-6 hrs a day to play golf. It is unlikely he has ever developed the body to excel in general athleticism.
I've always had more fascinatiion for those who played multiple sports in high school and excelled in all of them.
maybe but still speculative. I have seen guys who look like stud athletes that couldn't tie their shoes without falling over. Appearance isn't necessarily a precursor to how athletic someone may or may not be so I tend to be skeptical.
I would have had Dave Winfield, Allen iverson, Danny ainge, and Jim Thorpe on that list. Hell Vince young and Terrell Pryor could also...both were nationally recruited at 2 sports.
Riley Odoms from Corpus Christi West Oso was High School All American in football, basketball and track
I am talking training. His father had him out playing golf and working at it as a child. I just do not think he ever trained to develop those skills. I was not basing it on appearance

Held the high school record for the high jump. Pretty impressive for a kid who weighed 220 lbs in high school. Also was all-distict in baseball as a sophomore when he hit over .400. The only year he played. I got to witness him in basketball up close and personal. Scored 58 against us.
