Charlie Whitehurst May Have A Second Career As A Golfer

Charlie Whitehurst may be second on the Seattle Seahawks depth chart, but his golfing prowess is second-to-none. With the Champions Tour in town this week for the Boeing Classic, the Seattle Seahawks hoped aboard the promotional train, taking part in a little skills competition in Renton. And it was Whitehurst who stole the show.

Though he didn't win the competition, Whitehurst did leave the Champions Tour golfers in attendance impressed. In a closest to the pin competition, Whitehurst actually hit the stick, though his ball came to rest about eight feet away. Even Golden Tate got in on the action, finishing fourth after leaving his approach about 15 feet away.

Jay Don Blake heaped the praise on Whitehurst, calling the Seahawks quarterback's pin-seeker the best shot of the day.

"I didn't really realize the competition we were going to have with these football players," Blake said. "I went out there and hit a pretty good shot and I think you've got to give it to the football team for coming out here, second shot and hitting the flag without knocking it out of the hole.

Should've had Whitehurst and Tarvaris Jackson duke it out with a golf club for the Seahawks starting job. After all, it's all about competition at Seahawks practice.
