World’s Longest Golf Club Record Broken… Again

Well, that didn’t take long. Just last month, Karsten Maas made his way into the record books when he created the world’s longest usable golf club, measuring in at 14 feet, 5 inches long. Unfortunately, his few weeks of glory were cut short by the man who holds the most world records: more than 500.

Ashrita Furman broke Maas’ record by making a club that’s 18 feet, 5 inches long — because a 14-foot club simply isn’t long enough.

The makeshift Callaway Big Bertha also weighs 7.5 pounds, meaning it’s probably the heaviest club in the world, too. Furman didn’t take a full swing with the club to set the record, but he did manage to hit it 27 yards, which is good enough for the title.


This may have started a back-and-forth battle for the ages between Furman and Maas. It shouldn’t be long before Maas comes back with a 20-foot club, and he’ll probably hit it 150-plus yards.
