Golf in Space

A spacewalk may take place today (June 1st) on the ISS (International Space Station) but if it does, Russian space station commander Pavel Vinogradov will NOT hit a golf ball into space, as he had planned to do.

In space.com, Tariq Malik quotes ISS spokesperson Kylie Clem as saying, "We've been told that it's pushed to the next [Russian] spacewalk," which is scheduled for November. There's no word about why Vinogradov won't try to hit a golf ball into orbit?maybe his swing is off.
