CALGARY -- Michael Cammalleri is better than just a ‘decent’ golfer.

But he definitely wasn’t at the same level as his playing partner during the Olympic break.

The Calgary Flames left-winger teed it up with Canadian pro Graham DeLaet and teammate Mark Giordano at the Whisper Rock Golf Club in Arizona last week.

“I got to know (DeLaet) a little bit and I got to see him play once this year,” Cammalleri said. “I’m a big fan of his.

“Mark and I went out with him and it was special to watch. I think (DeLaet) was a 63 and I’ve never seen someone shoot a 63.”

Despite having to play against the rising PGA star, Cammalleri said his twosome came out on top.

“He gave me quite a few bumps and I needed all of them,” Cammalleri said with a smile that’s missing a few pearly whites.

“Gio was his partner and (former NHLer) Brian Savage was my partner.

“We took ’em down in the end.”

Cammalleri said he enjoyed his time off in the sun.
