bin Laden shooter: Golf is more stressful than combat

For most people, golf is a stressful game. But no golfer would confuse hitting a ball around a gorgeous course for a battlefield -- except for maybe one: Rob O'Neill, the purported SEAL Team 6 member who shot Osama bin Laden.

“Golf’s more stressful than combat,” O'Neill joked to the New York Post on Friday.

Apparently O'Neill gave the game a try at a therapist's suggestion after the May 2011 raid on bin Laden's Pakistani compound that resulted in the al-Qaeda leader's killing. It didn't help.

“The last psychiatrist I spoke to recommended golfing to relieve stress — and that’s a bad idea,” said the 38-year-old.

Then again, after taking out the world's most wanted terrorist, O'Neill probably has a perspective that there are other things to worry about than 3-footer.

THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
