Last Episode of the Distance Lab provided by Red Bull and Callaway.
Bridging the gap between action sports and golf, a new three-part web series called “Distance Lab” in collaboration with Callaway features renowned golf instructor Hank Haney teaching action sports stars Corey Bohan (BMX), Steel Lafferty (wakeboarding) and Alex Midler (skateboarding) how to hit a golf ball further than they ever imagined.
In this third episode, it was competition day to see who had the most impressive improvement, with Steel Lafferty taking the crown. His max club head speed turned out to be higher than an average PGA Tour pro (120 mph). There is also a surprise cameo by two-time world long drive champion Jamie Sadlowski, who provides tips and inspiration.
All three athletes showed significant long distance improvement, with Lafferty enhancing his drive from 281 to 320 yards. Bohan, a three-time X Games gold medal BMX rider, improved from 208 to 275 yards. Midler, an 18-year old rising star in the skateboarding world, improved from 191 yards to 266 yards.Google+
