How long can a golf club be and someone still be able to hit it? Apparently, it's now 18 feet, 5 inches.
The Guiness World Record for the world's longest usable golf club has again changed, thanks to a man who has broken over 500 world records in his lifetime. After almost 40 years of breaking various records, Ashrita Furman set his sights on a record held several times over by Dane Karsten Maas. Maas has been observed swinging and hitting a golf club 14 feet, 5 inches long to put him into the record book.
Furman blew that record out of the water recently, observed swinging a golf club that's 18 feet, 5 inches long. The club had a Callaway Golf ERC head on it. He only hit the ball about 28 yards, but that was good enough to earn the record.
Maas, the ball's back in your court, pal.
THAT WAS FUN, RIGHT?!
