Texas man sets record with 14-foot-long driver
If the USGA has a problem with long putters, what would they say about this?
Michael Furrh, who according to the information provided on YouTube is a "Caddie Master of Caddie Club Golf and Assistant Golf Professional of Rolling Hills Country Club" in Arlington, Texas, set a new record for a long-drive with a long club. He used a 14-foot-2.5-inch club to drive a ball 146 yards. According to Eric Nicholson of the Dallas Observer, that broke the previous record of 134.5 yards with a 13-foot-5-inch club.
