A team of four amateur golfers from the Isle of Man have set a new Guinness world record, by playing golf on six courses on six continents, all in just six days.
The Golf Global Challenge team, who privately funded the event and was supported by the Isle of Man Government began their quest for infamy on 26 January in Cairo, Egypt. From Cairo the team went on to Singapore, Sydney, Santiago and Miami. The record breaking sixth round was played six days later at the Castletown Golf Links course in Isle of Man.
In total the team traveled more than 30,000 miles, enduring a total of 108 holes of golf. The round-the-world golfing team was lead by Brian Kelly, owner of Mann Link Travel. Alongside Brian was, David Dean, Chairman of Charterhouse Group International Ltd, one of the leading financial services employers on the island, Basil Bielich, partner with Isle of Man accountants Browne Craine & Co. and close friend Adrian Cleevely.
