Zion Williamson may be a generational talent on the basketball court.

After what he did on Friday, though, it’s probably safe to say his talents don’t translate to the golf course.

The reigning No. 1 overall draft pick hit the course on Friday with other members of the Pelicans for an annual golf outing with elite season ticket holders and certain corporate partners. As he went to tee off with an iron on one of the holes, however, Williamson swung just a bit too hard.

The clubhead went flying down the fairway.

Despite the blunder, Williamson still received plenty of credit and support for his swing on social media.

His swing, though, isn’t the worst on the team. That honor goes to fellow rookie Jaxson Hayes.
