Do you wonder how athletes at the top of their game in one sport fare when they try another sport?
The Deion Sanders and Bo Jacksons of the world who excel at a high level in multiple sports are few and far between.
Djokovic is the greatest of all time to ever swing a tennis racquet.
There is no doubt or argument about it, but how would he fare on the golf course?
He showed off his skills at the Ryder Cup all-star exhibition, and spoiler alert: he looked very good.

The golf club worked fine, but at one point Djokovic reached for something more familiar.
Golf looks a little different when you’re Novak Djokovic. 😅 pic.twitter.com/lbn7eCvjjP

I guess we should have expected this since we could see tennis racquets tucked in his golf bag when he was on the drving range.
The tennis rackets in the golf bag is quite something 😂😂 #djokovic

Some body language transcends tennis and fits right in on the golf course.

Solid ball striking is his forte.
What a shot! @DjokerNole from the rough in the fairway well over 100 yards out and straight onto the Green! He may be pushing to get into the actual Europe team at this point! 😉 ⛳️
