This is June Jones. He is 64 and has coached in the NFL, CFL (Canadian Football League), the University of Hawaii and SMU. Currently he is the  head coach of the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He definitely has one of the most unique ways of playing the game.

You’ll find no putter in this man’s bag. Jones started putting with his 5-iron when he got a bad case of the yips. He hasn’t gone back to his putter since. You’ll see why.

And the bare feet? “Jones doesn’t get into it,” reported Whatever that means.
