Joe Pavelski is modest when asked about his golf game.
“It’s alright. It’s respectable,” he said from Lake Tahoe on Thursday.
The San Jose Sharks captain will put his game to the test this weekend at the American Century Championship featuring over 80 celebrities from the entertainment and sports worlds. Pavelski enters the tournament a 30/1 favorite. (Wonder if he brought along any of his TRUTH golf balls to help him out?)
Pavelski, who will be in a group with T.J. Oshie of the Washington Capitals and Hockey Hall of Famer Mike Modano this weekend, rates himself pretty highly among the golfers on the Sharks roster.
“I’d have to give myself a No. 1 on the Sharks, but there’s a couple of good players, couple of six and sevens,” he said. “You know what, though, Jumbo’s [Joe Thornton] one of the best partners. He’s a great six, seven. He makes some putts and he’s who you want on your team.”
