D’Angelo Russell Whiffs Taking Golf Swing, Should Stick to Hoops

May 26, 2015

D’Angelo Russell is about to become a millionaire.

But it won’t be because of his golf swing.

The 19-year-old Russell, who declared for the NBA Draft and will likely be a top-five pick on June 25, just wrapped up a fantastic freshman season with the Ohio State men’s basketball team. He averaged nearly 20 per game, but that talent obviously doesn’t carry over to the golf course.

A video of Russell taking some cuts with a golf club—a driver or fairway wood that is ridiculously short—was recently posted to an Instagram account. Russell whiffed on the first swing but made some contact on the second. He has work to do.
