Wow.
I can't say I have ever heard of him Lag. Is he more of a long drive guy? He seems to really drop that spine angle back and beyond coming into impact which to me looks like a power move and maybe not so much a control move?

You're spot on..
Mike Austin still holds the world record for the longest drive ever in playing competition.. Five hundred and something yards..
yes, with a persimmon driver! wow is right...

He played a bit on the tour.. kind of a novelty act of sorts. He used to run around the Hollywood scene back in the 1960's
I have heard, but certainly had an amazing talent for hitting some amazing golf shots..

He has a huge cult following.. I'm sure there are others here that can tell us more about him.. Al Barkow told me a few
crazy "off the green" stories!
