In the Welch Stadium on Saturday, not only a football flew through the air.
Emporian Tyson Allen threw golf clubs across the field, not because he was having a bad day, but in search of a world record and at least unofficially he got it. Allen broke the previous world record for throwing golf clubs at 199 feet with a throwing distance of 71.69 meters, which is just over 230 feet.
Allen says it’s an incredible feeling to know that he could soon be immortalized in the Guinness Book of Records.
In addition to looking for a record Saturday, Allen did his best to raise funds for two local teams that are very close to his heart, the Emporia High School Golf Team and the Emporia State Track and Field.
The donation amounts are still pending, as is known when Allen’s litter will be officially made.
