"It's a great change of pace. New courses, new towns. I'm tired of screwing up the same holes every year." —Mark Calcavecchia, who will turn 50 on Saturday and move to the Champions tour
Besides the record 10 national championships he won while coaching basketball at UCLA, John Wooden, who died last Friday at 99, left his mark on golf too. Wooden (left) is believed to be one of only four players to make a hole-in-one and a double eagle during the same round. He accomplished the feat in 1947 at what is now South Bend Country Club. Wooden aced a 185-yard par-3 with a four-iron on the front side, then holed a brassie (two-wood) shot on a par-5 on the back nine.
In January, Wooden, an avid golfer, spoke of the round with his trademark humility. "I shot 77 that day," he told the Los Angeles Times. "You go five under on two holes and a 77 doesn't look all that good."
