Pro-Athletes Who Love To Hit The Links

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

Some of the biggest names in the four major sports leagues in the United States, the NBA, NFL, NHL and MLB, also love to hit the links. For some, golf is used as a tool used to enhance a skill in their chosen trade. The motion the golf swing is similar to that of a hockey player hitting of the puck or a baseball player swinging of a bat. So, in their off-season they are able to improve their golf handicap and tweak that skill while enjoying the sunshine. Let’s take a look at just a few of the the many pro-athletes, current and former, who love taking their chances on the course!
