Saban or DeBoer: Who has the better golf swing?

The Regions Tradition Celebrity Pro-Am has brought all the stars out to Birmingham including some of the biggest names in college football. From Trent Dilfer to Hugh Freeze to Kirby Smart, the list of players in the event is jaw-dropping.

But two of the more anticipated players in Birmingham were the former head coach of the Alabama Crimson Tide and his successor, Nick Saban and Kalen DeBoer.

But between the two Crimson men, who has the better golf swing?

Let’s take a look at both:

The first thing that can be noted here is that Saban clearly plays more golf than DeBoer does. Granted, of course Saban has a little more time on his hands these days but his swing is just a little bit smoother than DeBoer’s.

DeBoer brings the club back very far as he tries to kill his driver, but in the same video, Saban is seen warming up the wedges.

But DeBoer once warmed up appears to have not such a bad swing himself:

DeBoer has been quoted as saying that he wishes he had more time to play golf, while Saban has been all over the course lately.

For now, it looks like the former coach has the current coach beat.

But DeBoer has plenty of time to catch up.
