Caps' Schultz, Fehr Hit the Links

One might say that the Caps got robbed!!!!!!!! when it came to this year's All-Star balloting, but some of them seem to be enjoying the nice little break that comes along with not being one of the NHL's golden boys.

PGATour.com somehow recognized and then interviewed defenseman Jeff Schultz and winger Eric Fehr at TPC Sawgrass in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. yesterday after the two played THE PLAYERS Stadium Course.


Jeff Schultz, handicap "probably a 10." (PGATour.com)

A couple highlights:

- Both were asked to list the NHL's best golfers, and judging by their answers, it would seem that an NHL All-Star golf game would be heavily populated with Capitals. (Also, Alex Ovechkin? Robbed.):

Schultz: "I guess on my team (they would be) Matt Bradley, Dave Steckel, assistant coach Dean Evason and I'd like to think, maybe myself. Those are about the only guys I know who play golf."

Fehr: "I've heard Brett Hull's pretty good. Wayne Gretzky, Ben Clymer, he used to play for the Capitals, and then I don't know. There are quite a few guys who play golf (well), but I'm definitely not one of them."


Eric Fehr, handicap "between 15-20." (PGATour.com)

- They would both like to play golf with non-hockey fan Tiger Woods.

- Neither is able to make a convincing argument for hockey being like golf:

Schultz: "You're both trying to hit a little thing into a hole or a net."

Fehr: "I think it's kind of the swing -- a slap shot and a golf shot. To me I putt like I'm playing hockey. I put my hand on the bottom of the putter."
