Watch This Golfer Hit an Amazing Shot Into a Speeding Car and Set a Guinness World Record
Marcus Armitage and Paul O'Neil connected on an incredible shot that has gone viral on Twitter.
A professional golfer set a Guinness World Record earlier this month, after he hit a 303-yard drive into a BMW convertible that was cruising at 71 miles per hour.
The moment was all captured in a commercial and shared on social media earlier this week. On Thursday, the European Tour's Twitter account posted an approximately seven-minute video in which 33-year-old Marcus Armitage joined 41-year-old British race car driver Paul O'Neil to accomplish the impressive feat. The two had been aiming for the longest drive hit into a moving car.
After the first few attempts, Armitage and O'Neil connected on a drive and celebrated prematurely before learning that Armitage's drive was measured at 268 yards — just five yards short of the previous record set by golfer Jake Shepherd and driver David Coulthard. After a few more tries, Armitage and O'Neil connected on the record-breaking drive.
"Get in there!" Armitage screamed in excitement.
As of this writing, the video has been liked nearly 3,000 times on Twitter.
"Nice! I hope that car didn't get too many dents!" one person wrote in response.
