Golf Digest: Kovalev a 'Suitable Golfer'

by Staff Writer / New York Rangers


Rangers forward Alex Kovalev is a golf fanatic. In fact, the 3-handicapper has aspirations of playing professionally once his hockey career is over.

So it comes as no surprise that Kovalev is among seven athletes/celebrities who are featured in the September issue of Golf Digest Magazine ('Suitable Travelers,' pages 114-119).

As part of the magazine's Fall Style component, Kovalev, New York Giants running back Tiki Barber, actors Peter Gallagher and Dean Cain, 'Access Hollywood' co-anchor Pat O'Brien, triathlete Lokelani McMichael, Olympic gold medal-winning swimmer Dara Torres and Daytona 500 champion Michael Waltrip are featured in some of the latest designer fall business attire (See the photo of Kovalev featured in Golf Digest).

"It sounds funny, but golf has made me a better hockey player more than playing hockey has made me a good golfer," said the Togliatti, Russia native.

One thing is for sure after checking out this Golf Digest spread ... this celebrity golf group is all dressed up with somewhere to go!
