    Stride- When you judge this make sure the camera doesn't take the focus off the ball at any point. The kids that went 921 inches showed the ball wasn't moved at all the whole time. In Neil's attempt I don't really like how they take the camera off the ball so you don't know what is going on

    Nice record Hunter. How do you get it to fly like that? Mine never goes very high off the ground

    Nathan, your attempt looks impressive but i have some issues while watching the video. First, your video obviously has a poor lightning, a little dark I would say. Second, could you maybe zoom in the camera to the ruler/tape measure next time so that the measurements are visible. Third, could you try to include the ball in the camera frame when you measure the distance of how far you putted it as well as show that it has a circumference of at least 12 inches. I would like to see you try this again, I am sure you will do better.

    I bought a new one for $2. Still a $498 profit if I win

    Feel free to use any putter you like, be sure to show the club in the frame though so everyone knows what you are using.

    can it be a toy putter or does it have to be a real metal one?
