VIDEO: JFK's swing is better than yours
Great stories about JFK's favorite golfer and how he once begged to not have a hole-in-one at Cypress Point.
It seems fitting that in the month we remember the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's death we celebrate the things he was great at.
Outside of a fascinating presidency the man had a picturesque golf swing (I mean, look at that video!) but was known for not wanting people to know about it.
Time once called him "the swingingest president" and said that he tried to keep his small handicap a secret because he had been critical of president Eisenhower for playing too much golf.
"If voters learned that J.F.K. was as obsessed as Ike with a game seen as an out-of-reach privilege of the upper class, it would remind them that the Democratic nominee was an ambassador's son and a product of Choate and Harvard with a trust fund in his hip pocket."
That article goes on to relay a great story about JFK begging for a ball to stay out of the cup on a par three at Cypress Point and talk about how Arnold Palmer was JFK's favorite pro.
