“No,” he said, “It’s my tribute to Greg Norman. I went out trying to be the Shark today.”
And did you play like Greg Norman today?
“Not in the least. I didn’t play too much like a shark. More like the Little Mermaid.”
Which, as seems to be the way with these things, was okay. The point of the event was not to dazzle with golfing ability, but to benefit the Loudoun Center for Social Justice. And from that perspective, it was clearly a success. “It’s our first year doing this,” McIntosh’s wife Alessia told me, who has supported the group more or less since they arrived in the area, “but we’re thrilled with how well it went.”
And that’s good. Much better than if they had taken a look at McIntosh’s hat and chosen to enforce club policy.
Of course, McIntosh himself considered the day a success for a different reason, reporting via Twitter after the fact: “my team shot 7 under ………i think i did good cuz i came back with 2 balls out a pack of twelve yessssssss”
More Redskins golfing pictures after the jump, although nothing that quite reaches the majesty of Clinton Portis’s socks at Jason Campbell’s event a few weeks back.
Albert Haynesworth drives the golf cart.
Shaun Suisham took home the award for longest drive of the day (at 360 yards) and is a practiced golfer. That said, I suspect that the bendy club in this shot in an artifact of the camera I was using rather than actual torque on the driver.
Derrick Dockery, hunting for his ball in the rough.
And Kedric Golston decked out in full golf attire.
