I was pretty floored a few weeks back watching the St. Judes Classic and seeing the 265 pound girth of Guy Boros. That is just a lot of weight to be carrying around. And mind you, I am not judging Mr. Boros (or even the chunkiness of Duval) – he is on the PGA Tour with over 1.5 million in career earnings so he can weigh whatever he likes.
Just wondering if he did, say, lose 30 pounds or so just how effective his game would become. Well, that is my challenge for Mr. Boros – to lose 30 pounds. Only caveat is that I get a percentage of winnings once he starts making some serious money 🙂
He certainly is (to my knowledge) the heaviest person on the PGA Tour. I then did a bit of online research only to find out mygolfspy.com had already listed the top PGA Tour porkers and skinny-minnies on his site (see below)
No matter, they are still quite interesting to look at. I think the median weight was 180.
As far as the skinny-minnies go, Mark Wilson and Swede Richard Johnson take honors and weigh-in a dripping wet 145 pounds.
Even at 145 pounds Wilson hits the ball 280 yards and Johnson 275. They must have to generate some serious club head speed to hit it that far.
Please, let’s hear your comments on this one!
