For the record

  • Who: David Coulthard

  • What: Farthest golf shot caught in a moving car

  • Where: United Kingdom

The farthest golf shot caught in a moving car is 250 m (820 ft 2.5 in), achieved by David Coulthard and Jake Shepherd (both UK), at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, UK, on 30 May 2012.

The record was achieved on the second attempt, the golf ball left the tee at a speed of 286.46 kmh (178 mph). The ball actually landed in the car at a distance greater than 250 m however the 250 m marker was the closest point at which I could be certain that the record had been achieved.
