Long Drive Long Shot

PGA Professional and Carolinas PGA Member, Jeff Crittenden is featured in the February issue of PGA Magazine. See below for an excerpt of his story by Roger Graves, PGA Magazine, and click the link below to read the full article.    "PGA Professional Jeff Crittenden was undeniably the underdog, perhaps the longest of longshots, when the eight finalists took their warmup swings in the $250,000 winner-take-all RE/MAX World Long Drive Championship that aired live on Golf Channel from the Las Vegas Paiute Golf Resort in November.   The thinking went like this: How could a 43-year-old club professional, a full-time golf teacher with a clubhead speed of 125 and generating a ball speed of 210 mph, possibly match long bombs with numerous 25- and 30-year-olds who routinely generate clubhead speeds of 152 mph and ball speeds of 225-plus? How could Crittenden, at 6-foot-2 and 225 pounds, possibly keep pace with the 6-foot-5, 250-pound “kids” who looked like they just came from NFL training camps? How could the co-owner and PGA director of instruction at North Carolina Golf Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, match long drives with three former world champions and seven highly experienced Long Drivers with the world championship belt at stake? Actually, Crittenden flourished – underdog or not."
