Minnesota principal sets world record for fastest hole of golf

Rick Aulie set the record at a Breezy Point Resort golf course.

The principal of Pine River-Backus Elementary School in northern Minnesota now owns the record for the fastest hole of golf ever played. 

According to the Brainerd Dispatch, Rick Aulie birdied the 503-yard par-5 fourth hole at Breezy Point Resort's White Birch Golf Course, with his birdie putt finding the bottom of the cup just 1 minute and 39.2 seconds after he hit his tee shot. 

The Guinness World Record requires that the hole be at least 500 yards and the contestant has to carry a bag of clubs the full length of the hole. According to the Dispatch, Aulie carried a bag with a driver, 3-wood, gap wedge and putter.  

Aulie, who lives in Pequot Lakes, broke the record on the same day he turned 34 years old, Thursday, July 26. 

The previous record time was 1 minute and 50.6 seconds, which you can watch right here
