Video: NHL Star Ovechkin Struggles at Golf

Alexander Ovechkin is a brilliant hockey player, but he isn't much of a golfer.

Brilliance with a hockey stick doesn’t mean you can swing a golf club.

Alexander Ovechkin has been an NHL All-Star each of his 11 seasons. He is a prolific scorer, and he was the top goal scorer for the Washington Capitals in 2015-16.

But when he tries to hit a golf ball, it isn’t pretty.

Yikes! Look at that divot on the first swing.

Here is the full 43-second video. The utter joy after making solid contact on his third swing should be something to which every beginning golfer can relate.

Stick with it Alex!
