Marcus Armitage for Guinness World Records

Marcus Armitage and Official Partner Callaway Golf take on a Guinness World Records title.

Marcus Armitage for the record

The European Tour and Callaway Golf challenge Marcus Armitage to break the Guinness World Records title for ‘Farthest golf shot caught in a moving car’.

Two years on from our last Guinness World Records video, we took Marcus to Elvington Airfield in Yorkshire to try to break the long-standing record set by former Formula 1 driver David Coulthard and golfer Jake Shepherd in 2012.

Armed with his new Callaway EPIC Driver, and with 273 yards to beat, can Marcus and BMW motorsport driver Paul O’Neill do it? Let’s find out…

In Italy it is possible again to organize and play golf competitions in the yellow zone. The good news was communicated in time by the Federgolf.

After the one relating to the abolition of the examination of the rules, the Federation issues another circular (number 16), less surprising than the previous one but very much awaited.

Starting from April 26, 2021 it is allowed, exclusively for the territories located in the yellow zone, to carry out any sporting golf activity outdoors, in compliance with the guidelines adopted by the Presidency of the Council of Ministers – Department for Sport.

After careful analysis of the current legislation and unless otherwise and any guidance should be provided by the Department of Sport of the Presidency of the Council of Ministers, any golf sporting activity, events, demonstrations and competitions (including social and pro -am) if carried out outdoors and in compliance with the Federal Protocol.

With reference to the performance of the amateur sports activity referred to there, the use of changing rooms is prohibited unless otherwise established by the guidelines referred to in the first sentence.

For the territories located in the orange and red areas, the prescriptions made with previous legislative measures remain valid and effective.

A great step forward after months of lockouts or general play. Once again it’s up to us now to respect the rules (not just those of golf) so that golf never stops.
