The Long Shot

factual friday

You would be forgiven for assuming that the Guinness world record for the longest televised putt in golf history was made by a professional golfer. However, you would be wrong…

…Back in 1981 a 100ft world record breaking putt was holed by none other than… Terry Wogan!

This record held for a whopping 31 years before a 159 foot putt was holed in 2012, this time by a twenty-three-time Olympic gold medallist………….swimmer, Michael Phelps!
