Ken Griffey Jr. swings a golf club just as sweetly as he did a baseball bat

The way he swings a golf club at age 44, Ken Griffey Jr. sure seems like the kind of athlete who would have made an elite golfer, had he chosen that sport. To wit, the PGA uploaded Griff Jr. mashing a ball about 290 yards using a new Nike club. Such a clean swing. Griffey's probably not about to go all Rick Rhoden on us and join a senior tour — but what if he did?

Who else in the majors might have a great golf swing? Chris Davis of the Orioles can hack, probably. Adrian Gonzalez, definitely. As for righties — how about Adam Wainwright? And our guy Alex Rodriguez.
