Jim Harbaugh enjoys a relaxing round of golf

With 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh swinging golf clubs this weekend, there isn’t much time for football news.

But there were, in fact, two bits of news.

The first is that the high-strung Harbaugh “seemed uncommonly relaxed” during his five-and-half-hour round at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, according to Ron Kroichick of the San Francisco Chronicle.

If you’d have asked me what kind of golfer Harbaugh might be, I’d have guessed a good one, as he’s a natural athlete. He and professional partner Jason Day were tied for third after one round, 9-under par.

But I’d also figure him to be a club-tosser, but he was apparently loose (or caddy/defensive coordinator Vic Fangio did a good job of collecting them).

According to the report, he “amiably chatted with spectators” during his round, and joked: “No, I’m not good enough to get upset about it.”

But the biggest news might have been the fact he was wearing a red sweater with a striped golf shirt underneath.

Yes, Jim Harbaugh owns clothing other than black team-issued sweatshirts, clothing he may have, in fact, purchased.

    Of course he would have shot a better round … except he was cheated out of it by the groundskeeper.

    I feel bad for his clubs. They must take a beating on a bad day.

    Didn’t think Alex Smith would be caddying for him this year.

    I bet he acts like Happy Gilmore

    He suffers from denial so much, I bet he takes lots of mulligans. I bet he even denies that he takes mulligans after taking the mulligan.

    Still wearing the same pants, though.

    Jim said at the end of the round that he would have shot 10 under except for the fact that he threw both of his shoulders out of whack simulating “HOLDING…HOLDING…HOLDING” calls to stupid NFL refs who don’t know what they’re doing.

    Big hips for a dude.

    He would like to know why he was not allowed a mulligan after hitting the tree

  15. dukemarc says: Feb 8, 2013 1:02 PM

    You mean he didn’t shatter his headset after he missed a 3 footer? Weird.

    That’s funny, the title says Jim Harbaugh and relaxing in the same sentence….
    I’m just guessing but golf probably isn’t his best sport because of the mental aspects: there’s no one to blame but yourself.

    Everyone can make fun of Jim Harbaugh all they want, but who among us wouldn’t go beserk if we thought the Super Bowl may have been unfairly taken from our reach?

    Not a 49ers fan

    I was in a celebrity foursome at a charity tournament in California in 1988 with Jim Harbaugh, Ron Rivera and Keith Jackson.

    Harbaugh and Jackson were CRUSHING beers like mad men. No joke. They were hilarious at the post-tournament dinner.

    “But the biggest news might have been the fact he was wearing a red sweater with a striped golf shirt underneath.”

    This. Is. Groundbreaking.

    Sweater likely team issued from Stanford, turned inside out.

    Talk trash about jimmy harbaugh if you want, but we all know you want him coaching your team. Love the hate.

    First the NFC Championship, and then the SuperBowl…let me guess…Big Jim lost this match too!

    What can you say…Losers gonna lose!
