Just the other day, we saw Stewart Cink show off his driving skills – as a chauffeur. At Torrey Pines last week, he moonlighted for a little bit as a golf cart shuttle driver, much to the delight of his surprised passengers.
 
On Tuesday night, Cink was back home in Atlanta, where he showed off his putting skills – at halftime of the Duke-Georgia Tech basketball game. As part of a promotion, Cink set a golf ball down on one end of the court and tried to putt it through a small cutout in a sign at the other baseline – 94 feet away.
 
 
Cink, a former Yellow Jacket golf standout, is well known for his putting prowess, but this was a tall order – especially since the crowd at McCamish Pavilion was definitely a few decibels rowdier than your basic PGA Tour gallery. No matter, though – Cink gave it a rap, and the ball rolled … and rolled … and rolled … then banged off the side of the cutout and charged right though, prompting a huge celebration in the arena.
 
Cink's putt earned a cool $25,000 for a Georgia Tech student, who no doubt instantly became the world's biggest Stewart Cink fan. As for Cink, it looks like he's found a new favorite putting ball, so it's a win-win all the way around.
