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.

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.”
