Jay Stocki set a Guinness World record for making the longest golf putt in history in a non-tournament. He took a shot from a distance of 401.2 yards to break the world record.

Stocki made the record on his trip to Kohler, Wisconsin where he played in a friendly match at The Baths of Blackwolf Run with friends. After missing around 237 times, he finally hit the perfect shot, making history.

The American was on golf cloud nine after the achievement and recalled his match. He said, as quoted by Guinness World Records:

“We were all just so happy that one of us made it. It truly was a fairytale ending. We were so excited that evening that I ended up losing my voice for a few days!"

Stocki added:

"It's not easy to convince seven knucklehead friends to give up a few days of their lives to help chase a dream. Fortunately, I have good friends in Jeff Bell, Mike Born, Chris Carriveau, Bill Grant, Michael Guerrieri, Tim Radigan, and Dan Roberts, who joined me in making history.”

According to Guinness World Records, the previous non-tournament longest putt belonged to Dude Perfect’s Garrett Hilbert with a distance of 396.3 ft.
