Those crazy guys from How Ridiculous were back on a golf course attempting to set another world record. This time they aimed for the longest putt ever recorded. The original record was set in 2001 by Fergus Muir who sank a putt with a hickory-shaft putter from 125 yards out at the St. Andrews Eden Course.
The man making the putt is Brett Stanford, and he drains it from 395 feet.
I just have one issue with this video and record. THIS IS NOT A PUTT!
Sure Stanford used a nice new Callaway Odyssey O-Works #1 putter, but a putt takes place on the putting surface and this ball clearly runs through the fairway and onto the green.
Also, and this is me being picky, that isn’t a putting stroke, it’s a full back swing and follow through.
I’d also like to know how many attempts this actually took.
