    Default Finally, a good cross-training sport in the cycling off-season

    Aerobic benefits, keeps the hand-eye coordination fresh, what more can you ask for?

    Tournaments make miniature golf more than just a hobby - News | FOX Sports on MSN



    Brad Lebo is one of the best golfers in the world. Hes never competed at Augusta National Golf Club or played a round with Tiger Woods, but he has already won a Masters Tournament and the US Open. Twice.

    Lebo is a professional mini golfer. Dont make a windmill joke just yet, though.

    When (people) give me grief about being a professional miniature golfer, if its someone I know well, Ill say, 'What have you been the national champion at?' and that will end the conversation, Lebo said.

    Lebo, a dentist from Shippensburg, Pa., started playing mini golf seriously in 1989 and competes in as many as 50 pro tournaments a year. The Daily caught up with him and about 80 other professional putt-putters at the US Pro Minigolf Masters Tournament this month in North Myrtle Beach, SC.

    The winner of the Mini Masters gets a green jacket, just like in the full-size Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. But instead of the $1.44 million last years Masters winner took home, 2011 Pro Minigolf Masters Winner Jay Klapper got $4,000.
