Ailing Allenby makes this more confusing

Sunday, January 23, 2011

Robert Allenby shot a co-leading 65 in the first round of the Sony Open. He did so despite playing on a right ankle he sprained during a fall near the clubhouse Monday, an ankle that he has iced several times a day.

Thing is, I’m not sure whether Allenby’s feat of 65 supports the notion that golfers are athletes or the one that they aren’t. readers: We value your input and welcome your comments, but please be respectful in this forum.
