Coming off one of the best seasons in Toronto Blue Jays history Josh Donaldson entered 2016 with some serious momentum as a competitor. Unfortunately for the 30-year-old, that momentum ground to a halt on the golf course over the weekend.
At the Diamond Resorts Invitational Donaldson finished a pedestrian 33rd place in a field of sports celebrities which tied him with Jerry Rice, Tim Wakefield and John Hart. The third baseman was unable to secure bragging rights among Blue Jays as Joe Carter finished 26th.
Donaldson is a very strong golfer who likely would have expected to do better at the event, which was won by former tennis player Mardy Fish.
While his score at the tournament may have been on the disappointing side, Donaldson seemed to have no trouble enjoying his time in Florida and even got to meet a "hockey legend" in Jeremy Roenick.
