While transferring old VHS tapes to DVD I came across this UTV clip from
1986 of Jim Carvill's world record attempt for the fastest round of golf
at Warrenpoint GC. Although he just failed he was successful the following year.

But you will see a few 'young' familiar faces during the interview in the background,
sadly some of them no longer with us.

Ged, no doubt, will be thrilled with this posting, especially if it ends up in Facebook!!! :camera:

Ah yes, Ged (aka greengrass) using all his blending into the background techniques to the max here (plus keeping a vigilant eye-out for anyone trying to elbow in on his camera space!) and looking resplendent sporting his infamous St. Marks, S6 anorack :D

just to show how good that effort was by Jim...here is a guy from Minnesota who tried to beat Jim's world record ( and he used a 25mph golf cart ! )
