Just Women’s Sports ‘Pro-to-Pro’ series, presented by Cisco, kicks off with golf sensation Danielle Kang sharing her tricks of the trade with hockey star (and aspiring recreational golfer) Hilary Knight.

With three Olympic medals, including one gold, and seven World Championships, Knight is one of the most decorated hockey players ever to take the ice. Her golf swing, however, could use some pointers.

Kang, with five LPGA tour wins, including a 2017 KMPG Women’s PGA Championship, is the perfect teacher for the job.

The virtual lesson, made possible by Webex by Cisco, start with Kang working on Knight’s stance.

“Legs feed the wolves,” says Kang, borrowing a phrase from hockey. With the fundamentals down, Kang and Knight move through everything from technique and sports psychology to the importance of presence in sport.
