I had read the man had big hands, like Sam Snead. I can't remember the number, but Snead could pick up a ridiculous number of golf balls with one hand. I want to say 8. Faldo could do one less.

Ten wraps on those grips is ridiculous.

Nick is 6' 3" tall and played a driver of 43.5" length.
This tells me he was mostly interested in control off the tee. (???)
Accelerate forever!
