WATCH: Manny Ramirez has a really bad golf swing

  • David Whitlock

Just because you can hit 555 career home runs, doesn’t mean you can hit a golf ball down the middle of the fairway.  Or on the fairway.  Or straight.  Or barely out of the tee box.  Or with any sort of form.  Ten-time All-Star OF and DH Manny Ramirez apparently never got hooked by the game of golf (despite 19 years of spring training in sunny Arizona or Florida).  Check out this ugly swing, then burn the tape so you don’t learn any bad habits (via


No comment on the colorful shoes, either.  Ramirez was participating with former Boston Red Sox teammate David Ortiz in his seventh annual celebrity golf tournament to benefit his children’s fund.  Check out a longer video of the event via this link.

David Whitlock - manager

David (a.k.a. Longhorndave or lhd_on_sports) joined the staff late in the 2012 season and moved to Site Manager in early 2013. A lifelong Houston Astros fan (and mini-season ticket holder for 9 years) he attends 20+ games per year. A statistics freak, David still keeps score the "old fashioned way" on occasion (and has kept manual score of World Series games since 1986 and retains the sheets). He was a featured guest weekly on the Phil Naessens Show. He is also a Texas Longhorns alumnus and huge football and baseball fan of his alma mater. When he isn't watching or writing about baseball, he works as a contractor at NASA Johnson Space Center. He lives by the mantra "a bad day at the ballpark is better than a good day anywhere else."
