Retired baseball star Derek Jeter says he's addicted to the game of golf, and played the other day with Tiger Woods. Jeter says it is "probably the most frustrating thing" he's ever done.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. Derek Jeter retired from the New York Yankees but hasn't given up sports. The one-time baseball star took up golf.

The Yankee shortstop, who once hit Randy Johnson's 95-mph fastballs, is now struggling to hit a ball that doesn't even move. You're listening to MORNING EDITION.
