I’m not sure what an “unofficial Guinness World record” is — isn’t the whole point of Guinness to make the record official? — but Michael Furrh of Arlington, Texas claims to have it. He recently smacked a golf ball with a 14-foot-2.5-inch driver, and hit it 144 yards down the fairway at Rolling Hills Golf Club.

I would pay up to $15 to see Charles Barkley swing this.

That, according to Furrh, breaks the record formerly held by Karsten Maas of Denmark, who used a 13-foot, 5-inch club to drive a ball 134.5 yards.

    I saw this earlier. This guy is wasting valuable T times jacking with this. I use my time on the golf course looking for lost balls. By the way, nice golf course, not too far from me.

    I’d pay $30 to see Sir Charles attempt this thing.
