Brian Orakpo swings, whiffs at golf ball

Shortly before Brian Orakpo’s Leukemia Golf Classic kicked off on Monday morning, some reporters asked DeAngelo Hall how the Redskins would fare on the course.

“I mean, it’s some guys that kind of look the part,”Hall said. “You know ‘Rak can’t play. He’s a little too stiff. You can see that in his play on the field, he’s a little stiff. I think probably my biggest comp out here is probably Graham Gano. Kickers normally can play golf, because they don’t have anything else to do.”

Well, Hall wasn’t joking. Above, please see Brian Orakpo’s golf swing. That’s called Strike One, in clubhouse parlance. Good lord.

“Man, this is harder than pass rushing,” Orakpo said on his first tee, according to Britt McHenry.

Also: He’s a lefty. Who knew?
