Who says WWE Superstars can't be multi-sport athletes?

A host of Raw and SmackDown's finest, including The Miz, Booker T, Zack Ryder and United States Champion Santino Marella traded in their ring boots for a pair of cleats and a 9-iron at the annual WrestleMania Pro Am golf tournament on Friday. The ring warriors, many of whom will see action at WrestleMania XXVIII on Sunday, took to the green in force for a round of golf at the Doral Golf Resort and Spa in Miami and were joined by WWE.com Social Media Ambassador, Mike Tyson.

The event provided the Superstars a fun opportunity to cut loose and enjoy themselves in the hectic week leading up to The Show of Shows. "Honestly, it's been wonderful," said Intercontinental Champion Cody Rhodes, who'll defend his championship against Big Show on Sunday. "It's a beautiful course." 

A course that's about to get an upgrade, it should be said, as the Doral resort was recently purchased by Donald Trump (his daughter Ivanka was actually on the course as well for a separate event).

The new management might have some regulars on their hands after this, as there are one or two WWE stalwarts who can hold their own on the green. "A small minority," is how Rhodes described it; that group evidently includes Ted DiBiase (golfing on a broken ankle, DiBiase Posse in tow) and Brodus Clay, the latter of whom certainly came prepared in his finest striped Polo and a stuffed dinosaur mounted on his cart. Rhodes himself, however, isn't quite among them. "You think I'm an exceptional golfer because I'm the Intercontinental Champion?" Rhodes quipped. "No, I'm not ... but I'm surviving."

He wasn't alone in the sentiment ...
