48 inches might be the longest legal golf club according to the United States Golf Association, but that wasn’t stopping Arlington, Texas-based golf pro Michael Furrh from having some fun.
The USGA is currently trying to ban the lengthy belly putters that have become a common sight on the PGA Tour. So, you’re not likely to see Furrh’s 14-foot, 2.5-inch driver out on the course any time soon. However, upon constructing the monster, Guinness was on hand to verify the event, in which Furrh hit a golf ball 146 yards with the club.
For the record, the head on Furrh’s drive was a regulation 460 cc, and his club, the Caddie Golf Club, is hoping to use awareness and appearances associated with the golf club and record to raise money for charity.
Check out a video of the record below.
