Walking sound bite Mike Leach has his say on golf

April 18, 2018

For fear of beating Mike Leach into the ground, which isn't even possible, we're going to try to make this the last thing we write about him until football season. Unless of course, he offers up some secret info on the JFK assassination, UFOs, aliens or Big Foot. Oh, crap, he's talked about a few of those already. OK, then we'll wait until he has a healthy debate about Pirates vs. Vikings... SON OF A B--.

Seriously, no more Leach until September, except for this instance, where the Washington State coach had his say on golf. Not surprisingly, he hates the game we all love:

Leach has a way of breaking down something so literally that you can't help but agree with the man, although we definitely disagree with him here. But he's not wrong about this:

"They'll line up over the ball and they'll say they're going to do something that you can't do with a sniper rifle and a scope, but they're going to do it with a stick and a ball. They'll say 'OK if I just back off on my left and put a little more weight on my right, the ball will go right there.' No it won't. I mean it might be a good shot, it might be a great shot, but it's not going to go there."

Sounds like everyone's golf game. Speaking of, there's a lot of great ways to improve your game and hit the ball to the spot your aiming with Golf Digest All Access, your trusted source for golf instruction. We don't expect Leach to be our latest customer, but we do wish he'd come out and just talk to us for four hours while we played 18 holes.
