4 Kentuckians earn Guinness World Record in miniature golf

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) — Four Kentuckians have earned a Guinness World Record and helped out those in need.

Father-son duo Chris and Cole Hetzel, Tony Centers and Bob Schoettinger now hold the record for the most holes of miniature golf in 24 hours by a foursome.

In July, they played 116-and-a-half rounds, had more than 14,000 strokes and powered through 2,097 holes.

They smashed the previous record by 657 holes.

But this putt-putt game wasn’t just for fun.

The foursome encouraged donations for Matthew 25: Ministries, which helped after the devastating floods that hit the state.

They raised almost $3,000 directly.

The International Humanitarian and Disaster Relief Organization also said it saw a surge in donations around the time of the game.
