Volume II, Issue 17
Well sure, but if I had a lucky roll…
Twenty-five-year-old Clayton Burger is the new longest man in golf. Burger recently took first prize in the ReMax World Long Drive Contest in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was Burger’s first appearance in the contest, and it is the second year in a row that a first-timer has won the event. Incidentally, the club Burger used was a Cobra SS 427 with a 52-inch Penley shaft, and he took home $80,000.00 plus some ancillary prizes. Oh yeah, for the record, the drive went 402 yards!
