Always wanted to be involved in a Guinness world record? Now's your chance! And you don't even have to leave your sofa

Want to be part of a golf world record attempt without having to leave the comfort of your own home? Well you’re in luck.

PGA professionals around the world will be attempting to give the world’s biggest golf lesson on Instagram Live at 2pm on May 5.

The golf pros will each give a putting lesson, and the number of live viewers they get on their Instagram will be added to the global total.

And what’s more, coaching legend David Leadbetter will get proceedings underway.

If you want to get involved it’s all pretty simple. Just head to your favourite golf coach’s Instagram page to join in. 

It’s all in aid of the NHS, as well as other health charities around the world, and the current world record is 10,000 participants – so be sure to get your friends and family involved too.

If you’re a PGA pro you can register to take part, and anyone who wishes to donate can do so on the event’s JustGiving page.
