Video: World Record Setting Shot With 14-Foot Long Club

Thanks to the "GolfChannel.com" team for this video of the world record-setting strike by Michael Furrh with a 14-foot long golf club. Excuse me, 14 feet, 2.5 inches.

146 yards, that's shorter than Bubba Watson hits a hooded gap wedge off pine straw, so exactly what is the world record???

The lack of carry and the size of the divot goes to prove one thing:

Never buy off the rack clubs. There's really no substitute for getting custom-fitted.

So, what the hell world record is this?

The longest drive ever hit with a 14.25 foot shaft?

Or is it the longest shaft ever used to successfully get a golf ball airborne?

If someone was lucky enough to have a 14.50 foot shaft and practiced all week, you would think that any competent golfer could set yet another world record.

This is basically a confusing non-story.

Hank Haney apparently helped with this one...
