World's Fastest Ever Hole-In-One

2y ago


Ex-Formula One driver David Coulthard and up-and-coming professional golfer Jake Shepherd have set a new record for the world's fastest hole-in-one. Coulthard was driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG Roadster as Shepherd teed off at the Top Gear test track, the ball passing a speed trap at 178mph. In order to make the catch Coulthard needed to race 275 metres down the track, and was still travelling at 120mph when the ball landed in the cockpit of the £177,000 car. Scottish motorsport ace Coulthard calmly kept his hands on the steering wheel but his eyes were glued to the sky, watching the ball travel fly through the air. The feat was independently verified by a Guinness World Record adjudicator who confirmed the achievement was the furthest golf shot caught in a moving car.
