The Guinness World Records' record for the most golf ball catches over 100 metres in one minute is 7 and was achieved by golfer Daniel Parkes and catcher Nicholas Parkes (both UK) at Edwalton Municipal Golf Course in Edwalton, Nottinghamshire, UK, on 26 August 2013.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the most basketball neck catches in one minute; it is 27 set by Ashrita Furman (USA) at the Panorama Café in New York City, New York, USA, on 2 October 2009.
The event recreated a commercial that aired during the football season and featured Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald catching one-handed passes from Brees, Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck and San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, ESPN reported.
The passes had to travel at least 10 yards. The event was officiated by Arizona Interscholastic Association football official Tyler Cerimeli.
They had to complete at least 10 passes in 60 seconds for the record to count. Their record-breaking attempts were televised, but if they had failed to reach 10, the pair would have had another two 1-minute attempts to set the mark.
