A New Zealander with a passion for golf, and for breaking records, has smashed his way straight into the record books by playing a whopping 237 holes over 12 hours.
Brad Luiten has earned a well-deserved spot in the Guinness’s Book of World Records for his impressive golfing stint and perhaps what’s even more amazing is that this isn’t the first time he’s set a record either!
Luiten, a national class runner has also set the Guinness World Record for running on crutches, and its clear that when this Kiwi sets out to do something, he does it properly.
Reaching his goal of 237 holes in 12 hours on Monday evening, Luiten was satisfied that he had putted, smashed and driven his way to meeting his goal, and was now ready to call it a day.
He had started his record attempt at 07h40 at the local Helensville Golf Club and was watched by World Record supervisors and a growing crowd of curious onlookers.
By playing 237 holes in 12 hours Luiten shattered the previous Guinness World Record of 221 holes, and had time to complete almost a full second course. The previous golfing record was held by Canadian Scott Holland, who had played 221 holes in Alberta at the Fairmont Banff Springs Golf Course back in 2005.—AFP
