Captain Amazing takes on lost golf balls

Greg Kinnear may have been nominated for an Oscar for his role in “As Good As it Gets”, but he has played a wide range of characters including Mystery Men’s Captain Amazing. He is also an amazing celebrity golfer,

While filming one of his many roles, Kinnear had inspiration for a new invention, a golf ball finder.

He explains, “I play golf a little bit and I don’t know why somebody can’t invent an electronic ball finder for $29.95. It’s a great father’s day gift and it would sell off the racks.
“When a mediocre golfer can’t find a ball that is four feet from them is baffling to me in the year 2008.
“That’s my big invention that I’m putting out into the world. Obviously I do want credit and I will sue you if take that without my consultation rights.” – Express UK, 2008

I wonder if the makers of BallFinder Scout know Kinnear called dibs on their product.

Mace Windu carries a light saber in his golf bag

It is always fun to find out how our favorite comic book superheroes tie their love of golf in with their famous roles. Samuel L. Jackson, star of Star Wars and The Avengers, is a huge fan of the game. I found this great story in an interview he did with Golf Digest:

During filming of “Star Wars II,” I carried my light saber in my golf bag. I had to practice whenever I could because there were 109 movements to learn. We were in Australia, and I’d whip it out on a tee box when play was slow and go through the moves. The people I played with thought that light saber was very cool. It was about the length of a driver and weighed about the same, too. One of those moves is similar to a golf swing, used to block an overhand blow. The hands lead, like you’re playing a knockdown shot, and the block comes high in the follow-through. Apparently the move wasn’t good enough. In the final “Star Wars,” Mace Windu gets killed.

I wonder, if they had let him use his driver, would he have survived? AND what kind of cover do you put on a light saber?
