Watch: Wayne Gretzky shows off his swing with smooth tee shot

October 25, 2018

Ask any hockey fan who the greatest player of all-time is, and you’ll get the same response: Wayne Gretzky. There’s a reason that he’s more commonly referred to as “The Great One.”

When it comes to golf, though, Gretzky is no slouch as well. No. 99 can bang it around pretty well on the course.

The 57-year-old former center showed off his swing with a smooth tee shot at the Invesco QQQ Championship, a Champions Tour event held this week at Sherwood Country Club in California, Gretzky’s home course.

Check out the solid footwork. A bit vertical with the takeaway, but no lack of power, that’s for sure.

We’ve seen Gretzky on the course before, playing with his daughter’s fiancĂ©, Dustin Johnson at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am the last few years.

Happy Gilmore might have some competition over who is the greatest hockey-player-turned-golfer.
