Ken Griffey Jr. had arguably the sweetest swing in baseball history. It doesn't look like he had much trouble adjusting that swing for golf.

Griffey took part in the PGA Show Outdoor Demo Day on Tuesday, and he got to hit about 30 balls with the Nike Covert 2.0 driver. "The Kid" drove the ball anywhere from 270 to 290 yards on the day.
