Welcome to the world’s cutest sport: Professional Miniature Golf. Yes, it exists, and even a former “Bachelor” is getting in on the putt-putt action. 

“When [people] give me grief about being a professional miniature golfer, if it’s someone I know well, I’ll say, ‘What have you been the national champion at?’ and that will end the conversation,” Lebo said.

Lebo, a dentist from Shippensburg, Pa., started playing mini golf seriously in 1989 and competes in as many as 50 pro tournaments a year. The Daily caught up with him and about 80 other professional putt-putters at the U.S. Pro Minigolf Masters Tournament this month in North Myrtle Beach, S.C.

The winner of the Mini Masters gets a green jacket, just like in the full-size Masters Tournament in Augusta, Ga. But instead of the $1.44 million last year’s Masters winner took home, 2011 Pro Minigolf Masters Winner Jay Klapper got $4,000.

But that didn’t detract from the thrill of winning at the Hawaiian Rumble, a celebrated course with a mock volcano that mock-erupts every 20 minutes.

This incredible woman says it all for me and probably for other breast cancer survivors as well.  

Just one thing to add, Cancer is not a pretty pink ribbon wrapped in a bow. It is messy and scary and bald and burnt.  And the beauty of this and every other woman battling cancer far outweighs that meaningless symbol.

Congress may slash farm subsidies, then replace them with new ones.

As Congress maneuvers to write the latest farm bill, it appears poised to slash $5 billion in yearly direct payment subsidies to farmers — but some lawmakers are pushing to create a new class of subsidies to take their place.
“To a large extent, the Senate and House agriculture committees are engaged in an exercise to minimize the impact of the proposed cuts,” said Vincent Smith, a professor of agriculture economics at Montana State University. “This is really bait and switch.”
