Video: Yao Ming's golf swing is, well, not so great

By Shane Bacon | Blogger

There are few things more satisfying for golfers than professional athletes absolutely hacking it around when put over a golf ball. The game might look easy from the outside, but it's a tough, tough sport and some of the most athletic people in the world struggle with it.

And even better than that? An extremely tall athlete trying to take up the game. Yao Ming is one of the most recognizable athletes in the world and, at 7-foot-6, might not be the best candidate for a scratch handicap. But hey, at least he's trying.

We've already seen what his golf clubs look like in a regular staff bag, but above you get to see his move while patrolling the links.

Yao, my advice -- a little less dip and maybe a smaller entourage.
