Ray’s a pretty good golfer

Ray and kevin na If you follow Ray Allen on Twitter, you know he's a pretty avid golfer.  In fact, that picture of him and Kevin Na is from his twitpic account

But Charles Barkley is an avid golfer… and we know what that looks like.  So just playing a lot doesn't make you good.  So how good is Ray Allen really?

According to Golf Digest… he's good enough to be #60 on the list of the top 150 athlete golfers.

The first thing I do is check the clubface: I want it to be closed.
Then I just turn my left shoulder behind the ball and turn through,
making sure my right shoulder clears before I lift my head.

Take a look at the breakdown of his swing here

I think this all boils down to Ray's OCD won't let him suck at anything.  

Here's where other local athletes fall on the list:

11.  Marc Savard
T-47. Cam Neely
T-56. Larry Bird
58. Tim Wakefield
66. Bobby Orr
T-82. Tom Brady
90. Bob Cousy
111. Jim Rice
112. John Havlicek
T-122. Bill Russell
T-125. Wes Welker

Jeez… you have a championship calibur team just based on the great Celtics golfers.  Cooz, Ray, Bird, Havlicek and Russell.  Bad ass.
