VIDEO: Hale Irwin on His College Football and Pro Golf Careers

HALE IRWIN IS IN THE WORLD GOLF HALL OF FAME. Irwin won 20 times on the PGA Tour, including three U.S. Opens (1974, 1979, 1990). In addition, he won 45 events on the Champions Tour, including seven majors. Irwin is a winner and competitor who is known for his grit.

That toughness also came from the gridiron. Irwin was that rare tour pro who played major college football. He was awarded a scholarship to University of Colorado, where he played quarterback and cornerback, and earned all-conference honors.

In the above Feherty clip, Irwin talks about his approach to football and golf -- what they have in common and what's completely different about the two sports.
