From Tiger Woods To Michael Phelps; Here are The Longest Televised Golf Putts in the Golf History

Length is usually something we associate with drives, not putts. Even professionals tend to focus on mid-length putts, which they praise as the ‘score-makers’, over longer ones which even the most sure-sighted putters are just trying to lag. But, although they rarely travel 300 yards, a holed long putt can be just as impressive to see as a really big drive. Let's have a look at some longest Golf Putts.

Tiger Woods 91 feet 

Woods’s body may have been ailing him during the 2014 season, but his putter most certainly was not. One of the jewels in the crown of a number of long bombs he dropped between 2013 and 2014 was this 91 feet leviathan at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. 

Nick Price's 110 feet

Recognised alongside Nicklaus’s effort as the Guinness World Record is another 110 feet putt rammed home by the South African Nick Price. Impressively, Price also made the putt in a major championship.

Jack Nicklaus's 110 feet

Heading 2

It’s official. The Guinness Book of World Records recognises Jack Nicklaus’s putt in the 1964 Tournament of Champions as the longest one ever made in professional golf.

Michael Phelps's 159 feet

Mention the words ‘World’ and ‘Record’ in regards to Michael Phelps and the first sport that comes to mind probably isn’t golf. The swimmer is the most successful Olympic athlete ever, with an incredible 23 gold medals. But the then 26 handicap golfer wrote his name into another sport’s record books when he holed a 159 feet putt in the 2012 Dunhill Links Championship.
