Yao Ming Looks Great At Address...

...and then there is his swing.

Thanks to Alan Shipnuck for Tweeting this golf.com photo gallery of Eugene Hoshiko's AP images from the World Celebrity Pro-Am at Mission Hills. Included are shots of Adrian Brody, Ryan Reynolds, Michael Phelps, Ronaldo, Andy Garcia and three shots of actress Minka Kelly.

Yao looks tremendous at address and so I went to YouTube to see if the rest of the seven-foot and then-some former Houston Rocket had a decent move.

I think you'll feel better about your wedge game.

Don't judge Yao too quickly. I remember when Charles Barkley said he would kiss a donkey's ass it Yao ever scored 19 in a NBA game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hxb8cONyZTI
I wonder if those are custom clubs. That looks like a 3 iron. For a 52 wedge shot (my Chinese is meh)

Check out Schmidt-Curley Design's Facebook page for more Yao Photos. The last picture shows his gigantic clubs inside of a standard tour bag. The link is here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.456992324352860.148105.169862899732472&type=1&l=c20926de62
