Gifted sports stars can thrive with less than picture-perfect: The practice range at Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course during the annual American Century Championship is a fascinating place to study golf swings, yet on this absolutely-nowhere-better-in-the-world July day alongside Lake Tahoe, Calif., there isn't a notable golf instructor in sight. Not that any of the golfers here are looking for help. For the next 12 hours -- and every day all week -- Hall of Famers, Super Bowl MVPs, NHL legends, current NFL starting quarterbacks, Michael Jordan and Charles Barkley will spend several hours trying to master the one sport they know they'll never conquer. It's beautiful to watch. We saw all kinds of funky swings, but most of them produced golf scores we'd all like to shoot. Truth is, everyone who posed for a swing sequence for these pages is capable of rounds in the 70s (some even in the 60s). How do they do it? By channeling the same competitiveness and determination that makes (or made) them great at sports to begin with. Look at Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (see below). None of the 75 athletes we saw at Edgewood gets as much from an aggressive lash. Super Bowl champ Ben Roethlisberger moves it a long way, too. Even Jerome Bettis, whose backswing is restricted by the bulk that produced the fifth-most rushing yards in NFL history, drives it past a lot of his playing partners. These guys might not have the most picturesque swings in golf, but they know how to get the ball in the hole. Besides, they never expected Golf Digest would be photographing their swings.
