Arnold Palmer: BowlingPalmer bowled with Ray Floyd in a televised event in Las Vegas in 1977, but his favorite sports growing up were football and pool. How good was Palmer with a cue stick? He used to get the better of Jackie Gleason, a renowned pool player who did his own trick shots as Minnesota Fats in The Hustler. ""I could beat [Gleason] at pool, golf, whatever," Palmer told Golf Magazine in 2010. "The only thing he could beat me at was drinking."

Phil Mickelson: BaseballPhil Mickelson surprised a lot of casual golf fans when he "tried out" for the minor league Toledo Mud Hens in 2003 as a right-handed pitcher. (Like Mike Weir, Mickelson is a right-hander who plays golf as a lefty.) Before Mickelson's debut on the mound, Paul Azinger cracked, "He'll probably be effective, because those guys haven't seen a 68-mph fastball since Little League."
