Russian Cosmonaut Plays Golf in Space

It is a golf shot that has entered the record books.

The ball never went in the cup or even made it to the green.

Russian Cosmonaut Mikhail Tyurin stepped outside the international space station Wednesday and made the world's first golf drive in zero gravity.

Tyurin has been keeping his golf skills up to par during his stay on the space station.

His shot came on the anniversary of a bit of golf played on the moon by astronaut Alan Shepard 35 years ago.
