Tournament host Sergio Garcia led a three-team, international challenge ahead of the Real Club Valderrama Open de España, as the Guinness World Records title for the ‘Fastest hole in golf by a team of four’ was broken.

The official attempt, which was held on the par five fourth at the Andalucia venue, involved a trio of four-man teams from host country Spain, plus France and Denmark, vying to complete the 500 yard hole in the fastest time possible as a relay. 

Garcia’s team included Rafa Cabrera Bello, Pablo Larrazabal and Nacho Elvira. Thorbjørn Olesen captained a Danish team with included Lucas Bjerregaard, Morten Ørum Madsen and Lasse Jensen. 

But it was the French team led by Raphael Jacquelin and featuring Alex Levy, Gregory Havret and Romain Wattel, which set the fastest time in an amazing 34.8 seconds to smash the target time for this new Guinness World Records title, which had originally been set at 68 seconds.

Jacquelin said: “I mean, 34 seconds, that’s unbelievable! It’s the best feeling ever and very cool to have the Guinness World Records title and hopefully get in that famous book. It was a big drive from Romain and an incredible three iron from Alex and then the putts from Gregory and me were very fast too, so it was a big team effort and the whole thing was a lot of fun. We knew it was fast but not quite that fast!”
