Chicago Cubs Rookie Hits Golf Balls Like He Hits Home Runs

October 9, 2015

Swinging a golf club is often compared to swinging a baseball bat, and Chicago Cubs rookie catcher/outfielder Kyle Schwarber has made the two look more similar than ever with his most recent feat.

The 22-year-old whose two home runs helped the Cubs to a 4-0 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates in Wednesday night’s wild-card game has a uniquely powerful golf swing that can launch a ball 370 yards. And at 6-feet, 235 lbs, it’s not unreasonable to think Schwarber can drive it even longer.

The swing itself is impressive, but the best part of the video might be the reactions of both Schwarber and whoever is filming the shot.
