Ben Crane has spent over 10 percent of his life practicing golf
He also shares a phenomenal Phil Mickelson money game story from a few months back.
Ben Crane was interviewed by Cameron Morfit recently for Sports Illustrated recently and he estimated that he had spent 35,000 hours of his life swinging a golf club.
The number got brought up because of the famous Malcolm Gladwell 10,000-hour theory.
Crane has been on earth for approximately 331,000 hours so by his estimation he has spend 10.6 percent of his life swinging a golf club. That's pretty crazy.
He also shares a tremendous story about Phil Mickelson and his well-known-but-rarely-talked-about practice money games.
"A few months back, Phil and I were playing a match in an off-week, and we were on the 10th green, both about eight feet away for birdie. He said, "I found the secret to putting." And I said, "Really?" Well, I make my putt and he misses, and because he's always jabbing me, I say, "Looks like I had the secret to putting on that one." He thinks about it for about 10 seconds and says, "Yeah, but I had the secret to putting at the British Open." [Laughs] Yes, he did."
The whole interview is great and definitely a must-read for golf fans.
