Heisman candidate can score with a golf ball, too

Alabama running back Mark Ingram, a Heisman Trophy candidate, apparently can do more than run with a ball. He can hit one, too, claiming, in fact, to once having shot a 69 in a tournament qualifier as an eighth grader.

"I was real good back in middle school," Ingram told the Mobile Press-Register. "When I got in high school, I stopped playing because I was doing football and basketball and track. I haven't played much lately, but I was good back a while ago. I'm sure if I picked up the clubs and got to go to the range a few times and knock the rust off, I'd be good again."
