The single most used club during any given round is your putter. While it’s normally used on or around the green, and yes, even in some cases from the rough (not that there’s anything wrong with that), there are some folks out that believe it can be used from the middle of the fairway – from over 100 yards away! Earlier this month, the boys from How Rediculous were on a mission to break the Guinness World Record for the longest golf putt-non-tournament and they succeeded.
Team member Brett Stanford managed the historical shot at the 5th hole at the Point Walter Golf Course, Western Australia earlier this month.
The epic shot has been confirmed by Guinness World Records as being from a distance of 135.67 yards (120.6 m) – just over the length of an American football field including its endzones.
Stanford’s amazing shot beats a record that has stood since 2001, when Fergus Muir, then 66, from St Andrews, Scotland used an 80-year-old hickory-shafted putter on the par-3 fifth hole at the town’s Eden Course to record a hole in one measuring 125 yards (114.3 meters).
135.67 yards! Are you kidding? We don’t suggest trying this at home!
