    A few other small putters -

    Brdovcak Dubravko CRO 6'0/172 19.00/62'4" 2 Varazdin 28/7/07
    Krzysztof Krzywosz POL 5'11/182 19.13/62'9" 2 Odense 4/8/07
    Yohei Murakawa JPN 5'11/182 18.43/60'5 3/4" 2 Kobe 2/7/06

    Other relatively small guys are Andrzej Mrozik POL 6'1/185 18.68/61'3 1/2" and Shon Yin 6'0/187 60'9"

    the 172 does sound a bit implausible. Stats are from Norbert Heinrich's SP site.

    Guessing Chuck Fonville, who broke Jack Torrance's WR.

    He's the late Dr. Pataki, unfortunately:

    I remember him from Slovakia of the mid-to-late sixties. That he was an almost 19 m putter, I never knew.

    I'm guessing he went about 225

    Ladislav Pataki ?, 5'9 1/2 187 lb - 61'2 in 1971. Farthest by anyone
    under 200 may be Yosvani Obregon(Cuba) - 65' 1/2", in 2000, weighing 198.
