On February 6, 1974 Allan Shepard, who had been the first American in space in 1961, was commander of Apollo 14 mission.  He created a golf club by attaching a 6 iron to a lunar scoop handle and managed to be the first man to play golf on the moon.  Unfortunately, he was unable to follow up with the customary martini.
