Team England have broken the world record for the ‘fastest hole of golf by a team of four’
The European Tour challenged some its star players ahead of the Turkish Airlines Open after the French team set the Guinness World Record of 34.87 seconds last year, with three more teams attempting to break it in Antalya this week.
Held under floodlight on the 503-yard par-five 15th hole at Regnum Carya Golf & Spa Resort, Team France came back to attempt to break their record against Team England and Team South Africa, but the defending champions were unable to better their time.
The South Africas went from tee to hole in an impressive 32.96 seconds, leaving England having to go even faster to break the record.
TV replays were needed to split the teams, but Ian Poulter, Tyrrell Hatton, Matthew Fitzpatrick and Matthew Southgate took the title by a whisker.
