Last week, we covered an entertaining video from the European Tour in which three foursomes, representing France, Spain and Denmark, attempted to break the Guinness World Record for the fastest hole. But the rules of this challenge stated that the hole must be a par-5 and must be over 500 yards.
Team France owned it, halving the previous world record by getting the ball in the hole in just 34-8 seconds. Each of the four team members needed just one shot each.
The record didn’t last long though, as Bubba Watson, along with caddie Ted Scott and manager Randall Wells, has already set a new record. This time, with an eagle.
There’s one caveat, though. While Watson’s team did technically use the 503-yard hole at Genzon Golf Club, it was one that allowed Bubba to cut a lot of the distance out by flying over the water. Nevertheless, Bubba’s team managed an eagle three, and they managed to do it in just 23 seconds.
