In part three of CBS' Giving Back feature on volunteerism and philanthropy, Byron Pitts profiled a preacher in inner-city Boston who gave up a cushy lifestyle to minister to the mean streets of Roxbury. How comfortable had Gerald Bell been before? He was "your typical cigar-smokin' suburban-livin' college-educated corporate banker--with a bad golf swing," Pitts teased.
An even worse swing belongs to Michael Tyurin, a Russian cosmonaut on the International Space Station. He was hired by club manufacturer Element 21 to hit the longest shot ever. Tyurin's six-iron sent the ball off on a one-million-mile orbit around Earth and ABC's Ned Potter provided the stunt with the desired publicity: "Take that Tiger Woods."
