The fastest hole in golf

Not content with hosting and playing in the Open de España last week, Sergio Garcia joined up with Raphaël Jacquelin and Thorbjørn Olesen to captain four-man teams from Spain, France and Denmark in a bid to break a Guinness World Records title.

The teams were aiming to break the record for the fastest hole ever played.

So how does it work? It’s a relay, with each player hitting a shot as they attempt to find the bottom of the cup on a hole 500 yards or longer in under 68 seconds. If more than four strokes are required, the first player has to play a second shot and so it continues.

France were the first to give the record a go, followed by Denmark and Spain…

It’s hard to tell if the French are happier about breaking the record or getting one over Spain!
