World champ Joe Miller and Norfolk’s European Tour professional Andrew Marshall prove a big hit
Former world long drive champion Joe Miller and Norfolk's European Tour professional Andrew Marshall pulled in the punters for a golf clinic at the Norwich Family Golf Centre at Easton on Saturday.
Miller, who weighs in at 20 stone and stands six foot four inches tall, wowed the crowds with his distance hitting display.
The 28-year-old Londoner, who as part of his training knocks back over 6,000 calories a day, smashed a 2 iron over 330 yards, while spectators lost sight of his hit with a driver.
Miller, who plays off scratch, claimed the 2010 world long drive title with a distance of 414 yards and as part of that attempt still holds the world record for ball
speed off the tee at 225mph.
