Boy, 15, makes albatross on 720-yard par-6!

A 15-year-old boy from the United States has reportedly made an albatross-three on a par-6 measuring 720 yards from the white tees at Meadows Farms Golf Club in Virginia. 


 

Michael Wallace made the rare albatross at the 12th hole thanks to a ripped driver and two bashes with his hybrid.

His drive, with a helping wind, travelled 240 yards in the air and then ran some 60 yards down the fairway. From there, Wallace struck his trusty hybrid 215 yards over the hill and down the other side, before hitting the same club again roughly 205 yards and finding the bottom of the cup.

What makes the feat even more impressive is that Wallace took up the game little more than a year ago. 

From the very back tees, the hole measures 841 yards, and according to the Guiness World Records is the longest hole in the United States.

In case you were wondering, the longest golf hole in the world is the 1,097-yard par-7 at Gunsan Country Club in South Korea.
