Bumped into former Pittsburgh Steeler Hall of Famer Lynn Swann this week at Augusta, although that's not unusual. Swann goes everywhere. He even ran unsuccessfully for governor of Pennsylvania. What was unusual about it was Swann was wearing a green jacket.
Swann is one of the newest members of Augusta National. If you know him, start buttering him up now before he changes his number.
He wouldn't talk about it. But I did find out he's played eight times already. Also, I found out he really doesn't need a fourth there any time soon.
To my knowledge -- and that's all we can go by here because Augusta National won't comment -- Swann became the first professional team athlete to ever get into the club.
Beats being the governor.
