VIDEO: Can European Tour Pros Set the Guinness World Record for the Fastest Hole of Golf?



Slow play is a big problem, but not on this hole, on this night, by these European Tour professionals.

Watch as four-man teams representing France, South Africa and England attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the fastest hole of golf. Alex Levy (France), George Coetzee (South Africa) and Ian Poulter (England) lead their respective teams at the site of the Turkish Airlines Open. The record they’re trying to beat is 34.87 seconds.

“Filmed at night in Turkey,” wrote the European Tour, “the four-man teams have to contend with a hole measuring over 500 yards, a water hazard and a stopwatch. The result is closer than anyone could have predicted.”
