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

HOUSTON — Arnold Palmer once talked about how golf is no more than a mental game between mind and body.

“Golf is a game of inches,” Palmer said. “The most important are the six inches between your ears.”

Houston Texans cornerback Isaac Yiadom might be the one player who understands how the two sports correlate with each other. He’s an avid player away from the gridiron, often trying to get to the course to shoot a new personal low round.

Prior to the start of training camp, Yiadom played a round at Wildcat Golf Club just outside of Houston. Hoping to break 90, things took a turn after the 15th green. He was staring at an 88 before realizing what the score was.
