[VIDEO]: Roy Williams talks golf, Dean Smith, Michael Jordan – and timeouts

Roy Williams, the Hall of Fame basketball coach of the North Carolina Tar Heels who has led UNC to two national championships, visited Pinehurst recently and took a few moments to explain how basketball and golf can be intertwined.

Not only that, Williams chatted about rounds at Pinehurst with Dean Smith – including his favorite Dean Smith golf story – what it’s like to play a round of golf with Michael Jordan and revealed to us the best golfer among his former Tar Heels (not necessarily His Airness).

Lastly, we got a little more basketball in there as well, with Williams explaining just what it takes for him to break down and burn a timeout.

(Hint: A lot. As Roy says, “If I get to go to Heaven and there’s a blessing for timeouts, I’m going to be the favorite son up there.”)

[Video] Pinehurst’s Maniac Hill becomes a firing range

File this one under “Something You Don’t See Every Day:”

On Thursday, as part of the Balfour Beatty event at Pinehurst Resort, one of the contests involved Maniac Hill, Pinehurst’s famed practice range – and crossbows.

So while the million dollar hole-in-one attempt was pulled left and the $5,000 putt ran long (at least he didn’t leave it short!), there were still plenty of oohs and awes – even if they weren’t for golf shots.

[Video] Richard Petty talks golf – yes, golf – at Pinehurst

NASCAR Hall of Famer and North Carolina legend Richard Petty visited Pinehurst Resort on Thursday as part of a Carolina Wireless Association benefit golf tournament for the Victory Junction, which is a year-round camping facility that serves children, ages 6-to-16, with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses.

“The King,” who won seven Cup championships, seven Daytona 500s and 200 races, took a moment to chat with Pinehurst about golf – yes, golf – before comparing his era to the NASCAR of today.

Naturally, Petty may have saved his best quote for off camera:

“I never got into golf. I was too busy going ’round and ’round in circles.”
