He has a considerable physical advantage over many of the other drivers, with a height of 6'8" and weight of 310-5 pounds. He won the 2007 World Long Drive Championships and has reached the finals on three occasions but has been beaten by rival Jamie Sadlowski (5'10" and 165-8 pounds) twice in 2008 and 2009.[3]
