I had the great fortune of taking lessons from Mike Austin - holder of the Guinness Book of World Records longest drive of 515 yards. Way ahead of his time, Mike Austin applied kinesiology and engineering to the golf swing resulting in effortless power and precision without the oft-resultant wear and tear on the body brought on by traditional golfing methods.

Mike taught until his early 90's despite having lost over 80% of the use of his right arm and leg several years earlier due to a stroke. His lessons were filled with snarls, grimaces, fury and praise - all in a moment's notice.
