How fast can four golfers play a 501-yard par five at Valderrama?

Five years on from our original attempt on the same hole at the same course, we’re back for the second Hero Challenge of 2021.

With 27.88 seconds to beat, we tasked Sean Crocker, Nicolai Højgaard, Wilco Nienaber and Min Woo Lee with breaking the ridiculously tough Guinness World Records title for the Fastest hole of golf by a team of four.

Could they do the almost impossible? Here’s how they got on…

Following on from the success of the live shows between 2016 and 2020, staged at iconic venues such as Edinburgh Castle in Scotland and the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, this year has seen the launch of a new era of the Hero Challenge.

This year, there will be three different style Hero Challenges from three locations across the European Tour calendar. Each will feature some of the best and brightest players in the world in a short-form social and digital video output, which will be supplemented by a more in-depth ‘behind-the-scenes’ broadcast show from each event.
