Craig Sager drank 26 beers during round of golf, beat everyone
Craig Sager is apparently a legend when it comes to consuming alcohol on the golf course.
Jason Jackson of FOX Sports Sun has gotten to know Sager quite well over the years, and the two have spent some time together away from the basketball court. Earlier this week, Jackson told a fantastic story about the time he played 18 holes with Sager and the TNT sideline reporter lit up the golf course. Jackson says Sager beat everyone while he was more than two dozen beers deep.
“It was one of those days where it was windy and 60 degrees and you could’ve just called it off, especially after living in South Florida — ‘Nah, this is a bad one. Let’s back off,'” Jackson told Jason Lieser of The Palm Beach Post. “And Craig was wearing shorts on this blustery, why-are-we-out-here day.
“Anyway, Craig Sager drank 26 Bud Lights in 18 holes and did not miss a putt. He two-putted maybe six greens, and everything else was in. We lost $70 each. It infuriated me. I don’t mind having a beverage after a round, right? But he kept having beers and I kept losing, and I thought, ‘I know this dude. This is a Midwestern man who has utter control of his constitution.’ There was no way.”
The obvious question on everyone’s mind now is who would win in a drinking competition — Sager or Wade Boggs. As you may know, Boggs has one of the most legendary beer-drinking stories of all time.
Drinking 26 beers and doing anything is an accomplishment. Drinking 26 beers and beating your buddies on the golf course is the stuff that legends are made of.
