    A jewish golfer was just denied entry into the PGA’s tounament at Angeles National Golf Club near Los Angeles — so there must be at least one.

    My father tells me the story that in one of the old hotels in the Catskills, a certain Rabbi was reading a beginner’s book on how to play golf. When my grandfather asked him why, he said he is the new golf-pro.

    Amy Alcott was for a while one of the best woman golfers in the world. I think she is the only Jew in the World Golf Hall of Fame.

    cshapiro,

    It is just about impossible to be a professional athlete and be shomer Shabat. That is particularly true in golf because almost all tournaments are Thursday through Sunday.

    The same is true for stage actors and actresses. Cantor Dudu Fisher was a star as Jean Valjean in “Les Miserables”, but he never performed on Shabat and has never been offered another major Broadway role. (His understudy was really happy, though, because he always got to perform twice a week!)
