(right), rarely plays tournaments, but the former University of
Kansas basketball player--who wore No. 12 as an academic All-American--is
our No. 2. Like Hanzel, Barnthouse has a predilection
for father-son rounds and squeezing in holes after work on the course where
he lives. A member at Hallbrook Country
Club in Leawood, Kan., Barnthouse is a team
doctor for the Kansas City Chiefs and also sees patients
in his private practice.
Although traveling with the NFL team limits his fall golf, Barnthouse has managed several golf trips with friends. Among his favorite memories are playing St. Andrews and Turnberry, where he recalls being two under par in rain and sleet. "I don't have sport-specific goals," he says.
