Nazr Mohammed calls it his “golf claim to fame.” He played with Fred Couples at an outing in Charlotte, N.C., and Couples told him, “You have a nice swing … for a big guy.”
” ‘Nice swing' is all I heard,” Mohammed said.
Golf isn't easy for the giants among us. For starters, Mohammed can't find his desired spikeless Ecco shoes in a size 16. His Ping clubs are 21/2 inches longer than standard. And when he's struggling, his swing has more moving parts than a windmill.
Mohammed is listed at 6-foot-10 but says he got shortchanged.
