How it all went
The competition took place on 31st Oct 2017 where the current Turkish Airlines Open on the European Tour is being played and Guinness World Record authorities with the European Tour thought to take one more chance at the record making and the teams surely did not disappoint, giving their bests.
The only team that looked a bit troubled were team France and we guess that was because they had the pressure of keeping the title to themselves, and a lot of time was wasted in putting, when they realised that their record time has already passed, taking note of it, team South Africa’s starter Stone was quick to hit it in the middle of the fairway and giving chance to Porteous who ran towards where the ball landed within time for his shot and the rest was too quick to believe. English team realized that the time set was too fast to beat now.
English team’s Poulter screamed, “No Pressure” to his mates, to which they responded in laughter, and guess what it might have really worked for them releasing pressure and everyone were quick with their clubs and posted a Guinness World Record just by few seconds gap.
