The Lendl Legacy Continues (But Not In Tennis)

Come on now, you remember Ivan Lendl don't you? The Tennis star whose own country tried to stop him from playing?

Well it turns out that instead of becoming star tennis players, Lendls seeds have turned to a different (and far duller) sport. Three of his five daughters have become excellent junior golfers.

Marika, Isabelle and Daniela Lendel, 17, 15 and 14 respectively, regularly take on and beat their Pa over the greens and both Marika and Isabelle have competed on the Us Junior Championship circuit. Marika, the eldest of the three, has even made the Junior American Ryder Cup Team, which probably
sounds more impressive then it actually is.

Whilst Ivan tours the celebrity circuit, where he plays a 2 - handicap, his daughters all have an eye on turning pro. And with a handicap of 1 in their teenage years, it looks like they have every chance.

Wow, nothing I like seeing better than a story about random hack golfers. I think I may put a link to this over at the Not Even Amateur Golfers blog.

LOL! "random hack golfers". Well, there are famous random hack golfers, who at least are doing something worthwhile, instead of being famous worthless-sluts like the you-know-whos.
