John Daly could be an Astronaut!

I just read this : http://www.space.com/missionlaunches/ft_060227_exp13_golf.html

Turns out a Russian astronaut is bringing a six iron and a golfball and hitting the ball from the International Space Station. Its part publicity stunt, part money waster.

"The ball is equipped with transmitters that will enable golfers to follow its flight around the world at the company's Web site, www.e21golf.com. Video from the shot also will be used in a television commercial."

They even built a special platform for the tee shot, and they're worried about the guy hooking it into the space station. In a spacesuit. Reminds me of trying to hit my first tee shot on a below freezing morning at Presidio with 4 jackets on.
