Let's have a little fun.
We've had the opportunity here at PGA.com to be able to get some golf swings of some major stars in other sports, and we wanted to put them on display for you to take a look at.
Not to judge - everyone's swing is different and even humongous sports stars have feelings - but to simply vote on which swing you think is smoothest.
And it's a pretty impressive lineup of athletes here.
We have who many consider the best hockey player in the history of the game, Wayne Gretzky, also tied to PGA Tour star Dustin Johnson through his daughter Paulina (who was also on the cover of Golf Digest). There is Charles Barkley, a Hall of Fame NBA player and also one of the biggest names the sport has ever produced.
Ken Griffey Jr., currently No. 6 on the all-time home run list. Bo Jackson, one of the most talented athletes of our time. And Peyton Manning, the QB's QB and certain NFL Hall of Famer when and if he decides to retire.
Again, this isn't science. This is fun. We don't have a huge sampling of swings, so we used short clips you'll see below. Take a look below and vote. We'll let everyone vote for a week and then publish the results. Thanks for playing.
