Dustin Johnson struggles to play badminton ahead of WGC-HSBC

Dustin Johnson may be one of the world’s best golfers, but the American demonstrated ahead of the WGC-HSBC Champions that his hand-eye coordination doesn’t always transfer from the course.

Ahead of this week’s event in Shanghai, Johnson and a number of the world’s top players switched their golf clubs for badminton rackets to take part in a special challenge.

Johnson was joined by new world No 1 Brooks Koepka, defending champion Justin Rose, Rory McIlroy and Race to Dubai leader Francesco Molinari to try their hand at one of China’s most popular sports.

With former badminton world champion Wang Lin on-hand to offer the golfers some guidance, the players were then left to go head-to-head in a Ryder Cup-style test.
