Yes, you read that right – a Los Angeles County sheriff recently took a prisoner to the golf course as his personal coach. Still in his yellow inmate jumpsuit, the pro golfer turned inmate apparently helped lower the sheriff’s handicap down from 14. Captain Jeff Donahue is now under investigation for taking inmate Frank Carillo to the golf course on Catalina Island.

Once on the course, Carillo he gave the captain pointers on how to improve his swing and reduce a double-digit handicap.
Carrillo, who compared his time in jail for multiple felonies to ‘hitting the lotto,’ thought Donahue should be emulated, not investigated.
‘He was amazing to me,’ said Carrillo, who believes the captain benefited from his lesson.
‘He kind of has this swing that’s old school and risky, but he hits it every time,’ Carrillo said in a phone interview. ‘I would probably say he’s a 14 or 15 handicap. Not too bad.’
