With the PGA Tour heading to Montreal this past weekend, the city’s most popular athlete decided to get in on the festivities. Canadiens’ defenseman P.K. Subban submitted a “Help Me Kostis” swing video for CBS golf analyst Peter Kostis to dissect. Check it out below.
The potential in Subban’s golf game is evident within the first slow-mo frames. He has a powerful, fluid swing that speaks to his natural athletic ability. Kostis, therefore, only tweaks Subban’s grip. He wants the Norris Trophy-winning, awarded to the National Hockey League’s best defenseman, player to display the same soft touch he uses to control a hockey stick on his driver.

Subban showed marked improvement with Kostis’s aid. Now he’s poised to become the real life Happy Gilmore. Take a look at some of these slap-shots:
Imagine that kind of power on the golf course. Could Subban drive the ball a Happy-esque 400 yards? Maybe, maybe not. With Peter Kostis’s help, I hope we find out.
If only Kostis could teach T.J. Oshie how to putt, hockey players might make a bigger impact on the sport.
Even P.K. Subban is interested in improving his golf game. If you are too, check out our link here.
