College coaches notoriously love playing golf but nobody loves playing golf the same way Steve Spurrier loves playing golf.

That's why it's not really that surprising he says he's never lost a round to a former football player he coached.

David Hale has the story for ESPN:

"In more than 30 years of coaching, Steve Spurrier has never lost a round of golf to one of his players. New challengers are apt to dismiss the claim, but Spurrier is happy to provide witness accounts of each of his triumphs. It's a record he takes seriously."

Sounds about right for the ol' ball coach.

He also said nobody gets a second chance.

"All of them say, 'Coach, when are we going to play again?' and I say, 'No, no, you had your chance,' " Spurrier said.

Again, sounds about right.

The entire article is terrific and takes a look at everybody from Bob Stoops (who's had success at the Pebble Beach pro-am) to Boone Pickens and how golf has infiltrated the lives of so many folks inside American sports.
