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.

The downside: golfers whose hips are more 'egg-shaped' tend to experience more hip pain than those with rounder 'ball-shaped' hips.
