It's hard to imagine being 7 feet 6 inches tall. Personally, I'm not sure I could even walk around without tipping over, let alone swing a golf club.
But for Yao Ming, golf has become an activity he has enjoyed frequently since his retirement from basketball. The eight-time NBA All-Star's pitching wedge is reportedly 45 inches long, an inch longer than most player's driver.
This past weekend he put his golf skills on display at the Mission Hills World Celebrity Pro-Am in Shenzhen, China, alongside LPGA star Natalie Gulbis. Gulbis posted this video on her Instagram page:
While his golf swing may not be ideal, can you imagine how far he would hit it if he took some golf lessons with a bomber like Dustin Johnson? Wow.
Yao also took time to do what he does best, which is making people look miniature in pictures. Here we see golfing legends Gary Player and John Daly.
It sure looks from this angle that Yao's club is tall enough to reach Player's shoulders. For reference, Player is 5 feet 6 inches tall. Here's one more hilarious comparison, captured by GOLF.com on Twitter:
John Daly also posed for a picture.
And this one looks like Daly, listed at 5 feet 11 inches, is standing beside a supersized statue of Yao Ming, rather than Yao himself. Watching the giant from China adopt Daly's swing would sure be a lot of fun to watch.
