WATCH: Southern Stars hit the range


It was a practice session of a different kind this week for some of Australian cricket's biggest names, with some of the Southern Stars replacing their cricket bats with golf clubs for a special clinic at Albert Park Driving Range.

Ahead of their final ODI of the season against New Zealand on Sunday, captain Meg Lanning, wicketkeeper Alyssa Healy and batters Elyse Villani and Rachael Haynes made their way to Albert Park to test their talents hitting a different kind of white ball.

Albert Park professional and 1999 Australian Masters champion Craig Spence was on hand to provide basic advice and help coach the cricketers about the similarities and differences between a cricket and golf swing.

We loved having the Southern Stars down at Albert Park – and hopefully they find time to make it onto the golf course during this year's Ashes tour!
