Fore! Forty-nine-year-old Dane, Karsten Maas, has made it into the hallowed pages of the Guinness World Records 2015 book for creating the world’s Longest Usable Golf Club.


It measures 4.37m (14ft 5 in) in length and has been used to drive a ball a distance of 165.46m (542ft 10,16 in) at the ‘Golf in Wall’ in Wall, Germany.


Karsten, a golf professional and ‘Trick Golf Artist’ says that although he’s very proud of his record-breaking club, there won’t be much chance of seeing him on the green with it – “The weight and length of the club make striking the ball really exhausting. Plus I don’t have a caddy!”

Guinness World Records 2015 is the 60 th anniversary edition of the world’s best-selling copyright book and ison sale now at all major retailers.

It’s packed full of incredible feats, facts and achievements and also features new Augmented Reality technology that enables the reader to bring record-breakers to life in stunning 3D.
