Swing King: Can Golf Help Houston Texans’ Isaac Yadom Play Cornerback?

HOUSTON – Arnold Palmer once said that golf is just a mental game of mind and body.

“Golf is a game of inches,” said Palmer. “Most important is his six inches between the ears.”

Houston Texans cornerback Isaac Yadom may be the only player who understands how the two sports correlate with each other. He’s an avid player away from football, often trying to reach the course to shoot new personal low rounds.

Before training camp started, Yiadom played at the Wildcat Golf Club just outside of Houston. He was hoping to break 90, but things changed on the 15th green. He stared at his 88 before realizing what the score was.
