Tony Lema-how many majors might he have won?

Documenting the swing of a potential superstar in the making, before his tragic death.





Tony Lema through contact. Left-arm and wrist firm and unrelenting.

The ball is driven away low and hard.





The film:


Taken by Irv Schloss in the early sixties. Irv used a grid pattern in front of his subject rather than his normal canvas screen behind.

We will never know what might have been. Yet I think it is safe to say that Tony Lema was one of the best players in the world and would have been capable of winning more majors for a long time after his tragic plane crash in 1966.
