ARLINGTON, Texas, Nov. 5 (UPI) -- A Texas man used a driver more than 20 feet long to hit a ball and break the Guinness World Record for the longest usable golf club.

Michael Furrh used his club, measuring 20 feet and 6 inches long, to hit a ball 63 yards in the air Monday at Rolling Hills Country Club in Arlington.


The drive qualified the object as the world's longest usable golf club.

The previous Guinness World Record holder, Ashrite Furman, used an 18-foot, 5-inch club to strike a ball.
