The Top 5

The top five reasons the players on the women's tennis tour like to play golf, especially this week at the WTA Tour stop in Indian Wells:

1. There is a golf course at the players' hotel.

2. You can ride a cart to get to your next shot.

3. There aren't any linesmen.

4. Nobody hits the ball back at you.

5. It gives you a convenient excuse of being too tired so you can back out of your own awards banquet.
