What distinguishes world-class golfers?

What distinguishes world-class golfers from those of us destined to forever miss fairways and greens? Is it their swing or their hand-eye coordination? British researchers have discovered that elite golfers are four times more likely to have an egg-shaped right hip ball compared to their left. This pattern, which is not observed in the general population, reduces the range of hip rotation and allows them to generate more power in their swing. The downside: golfers whose hips are more 'egg-shaped' tend to experience more hip pain than those with rounder 'ball-shaped' hips.
