A New Record for The Longest Usable Golf Club

Michael Furrh tests out his very long golf club.

There are Guinness World Records in golf that make some sense (fastest round, most balls hit over 300 yards in one hour) and quite a few that don’t make any (largest golf tee, longest golf cart). Here’s another one to add to the second category: the longest usable golf club.

In June 2014, an American man named Michael Furrh set the record with a club that topped 20 feet. For an unofficial attempt to break his own record a few weeks ago, he used a driver that measured more than 22 feet long. The drive went 87 yards, which is impressive given how unwieldy that golf club looks.
