Tuesday Round-Up: Richard Sherman, Seahawks Get Golf Lesson From Pro Jason Dufner

A daily link round-up of what's "out there" about your Seattle Seahawks


Good morning, 12s.

Here's a look at what's "out there" for today - Tuesday, June 23 - about your Seattle Seahawks:

Seahawks Get A Golf Lesson

Jason Dufner, the professional golfer who finished tied for 18th at this past weekend's U.S. Open at Chambers Bay, paid a visit to Seahawks headquarters last week ahead of the 115th American national championship.

Dufner, who won the PGA Championship in 2013, took in an offseason workout at Renton's Virginia Mason Athletic Center, meeting with Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll, wide receiver Jermaine Kearse, kicker Steven Hauschka, and cornerback Richard Sherman.

"I love football," Dufner told FOX Sports. "They're amazing athletes. They're strong, they're fast, they're physical. It's always great to watch guys and how they practice and prepare."

Kearse, Hauschka, and Sherman stayed after practice to tee off a few balls alongside Dufner, who offered the All-Pro cornerback Sherman a few pointers to help perfect his golf swing.

"I love being around a lot of athletes," said Dufner. "It's good to pick their minds, or just watch what they do. Why are they so good at what they do? There's a reason. They don't just wake up out of bed in the morning, roll over, and are great."

You can check out Dufner's visit with the Seahawks in the video embedded above. 

Professional golfer Jason Dufner took his pitching game to the greens of the VMAC following the final OTA of the Seahawks offseason and prior to his appearance in next weekend's U.S. Open in Chambers Bay, Wash.

The Seahawks and Princess Cruises partnered up for a sail with the 12s featuring players, the Sea Gals, Blitz, and other great Seahawks Legends. 

The Princess Cruise's "Sail with the 12s" departed this past Sunday from Seattle's Pier 91, embarking on a seven-night Seahawks-themed voyage to Alaska.

Several Seattle players, including defensive end Greg Scruggs, tight end Cooper Helfet, right tackle Justin Britt, as well as former Seahawks quarterback Jim Zorn, former safety Jordan Babineaux, and former guard Edwin Bailey, joined roughly 3,000 fans aboard the Crown Princess, which will make stops in Juneau, Skagway, Tracy Arm Fjord, Ketchikan, and Victoria B.C.

Here's a few photos from the journey so far:
