Also 50 yrs. ago this yr., when this reporter was living in Houston, he smoked reefer w/ a young woman who, he was later advised by the host, was then-Captain Shepard's daughter.
Hope our reporting hasn't ratted anyone out. We're pretty sure the statute of limitations is up, even in Texas.Don't believe the hype:
While on the Moon, Shepard used a Wilson six-iron head attached to a lunar sample scoop handle to drive golf balls. Despite thick gloves and a stiff spacesuit, which forced him to swing the club with one hand, Shepard struck two golf balls, driving the second, as he jokingly put it, "miles and miles and miles". Analysis of high-resolution film scans of the event determined the distance to be about 40 yards (37 m).
