    Went to high school with him. He dated my sister for a while. Last I heard, he was trying his hand at long drive, but that was several years ago.

    I take it back. According to this tweet champ broke Victor's record. Really an awesome swing he had (not just the power)

    I remember hearing about him. He played a bag of SMT irons and woods. Accuflex shafts. Carried two drivers as well. It takes a lot more than a long ball to make it in golf.

    I tried the irons at one point. There were so weird, A stainless steel blade iron, that had a ton of offset, and were strangely light.

    This is how old I am Fergie but Johnny Kaye was a big band leader back in the 1960's. Swing and Sway with Johnny Kaye. They played all over the US and some internationally as well. He's from the birthplace of DP4, Peru, IL.

    My favorite law professor, who has long since retired, is Andrew W.K.'s dad. I got to meet him once at a dinner at the professor's house. He seemed like a nice enough guy. Much taller than I expected him to be based on his dad's height.

    Robert Andrew, circa 1860, had seven top-10 finishes in the British, and only played 8 years.
    No one knows how or when he died?

    _Robert, we hardly knew ye. _
