Navy SEAL who killed Bin Laden: 'Golf’s more stressful than combat'

RSS

This just in ... golf is hard.

Don't believe me? Just ask one of the baddest dudes on the planet, Rob O'Neill, the Navy SEAL who just recently came out as the man who shot and killed Osama Bin Laden during the raid on his compound in 2011.

“The last psychiatrist I spoke to recommended golfing to relieve stress — and that’s a bad idea ... Golf’s more stressful than combat,” O’Neill joked during an interview with the New York Post on Friday.

The 38-year-old was looking for a way to get over his post-traumatic stress after several episodes over a 16-year Navy career that also included the “Captain Phillips” rescue off the Somalia coast.

After struggling to transition to a private life (and presumably giving up golf), O'Neill has settled on motivational speaking and advocating for veteran's rights.

Because no one has ever been stressed out by public speaking.
