You may have seen videos of seriously long drives, but have you seen this video featuring a seriously long driver? It's 4.3 meters long...
They say size matters, and by they we mean women. So no doubt there will be a few lady golfers out there who will instantly swoon at the sight of this massive shaft... Jaysus.
Anyway, here’s what the description on YouTube says: “Michael Furrh, Caddie Master of Caddie Club Golf and Assistant Golf Professional of Rolling Hills Country Club, breaks the world record for the longest usable golf club.
“Mr. Furrh's driver measures 14" 2.5' (4.3 meters) and is constructed from regulation steel shafts and a 460cc club head. This attempt was conducted at the facilities of Hank Haney Golf at the Golf Academy at The Lakes of Castle Hills in Lewisville, Texas.
“The session was recorded on a Trackman device, administered by TrackmanPRO Tom Harlan, to measure carry distance of each shot. Michael surpassed the current standing record distance a total of 5 times during the session with his longest shot, shown here, carrying a distance of 146 yards.”
Pretty impressive we think you’ll agree (come on, it’s 4 meters long!), but why would anyone bother is the question? Caddie Club Golf is hoping to raise $40,000 for local charities for 2012 through appearances with the massive club. So at least it’s not just time wasted.
