According to a story on the Yahoo sports website, The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, will be preparing for the upcoming NFL season on the golf courses of Ireland and Scotland in June. Roethlisberger told Yahoo Sports that he
“ will be playing something like 12 courses in 10 days and they are some of the very best ones that you can find. I’m going to the K Club, St Andrews, and a bunch of others.”
Big Ben views the marathon golf trip as a good way to get his mind focused ahead of the season
“Playing some great courses in a setting like Ireland and Scotland will be pretty awesome, but it is also a great way to keep your mind sharp.
Roethlisberger however, did not offer comment on what the obligatory after round beers would do on his mental sharpness. Hopefully Big Ben, will enjoy his time in Ireland and push hard for a return with his teammates in a game in Croke Park. One can dream.
