Tiger Woods may be boosting Peyton Manning and Denver to win Super Bowl XLVIII, but the world No. 1 may want to take pity on the Seahawks’ uber-confident cornerback Richard Sherman and share some swing advice with his fellow Stanford alumnus.
To be sure, LPGA teaching pro, Teresa Caluori, who provides instruction at the Seattle-area Maplewood Golf Course, has her hands full with the outspoken third-year NFL pro who picked up the sticks at a charity tourney last summer (his schooling starts at 2:30 below).

Since taking his first shot, Sherman has become something of a range rat. He recorded a second video to document his development ("It’s a process," he says, echoing a certain 14-time major champ) and offer some tips to his cousin, who’s even worse than he is with a bat in his hand.
As anyone who witnessed his post-game interview after Seattle defeated the 49ers for the NFC Championship can attest, the fifth-round draft pick does not exactly lack chutzpah. Despite the whiffs and shanks, he believes he’ll conquer the course as he has the gridiron.
"On a scale of 1 through 10, I’m a 112," Sherman boasts, "on my competitiveness."
