1982 Chief Petty Officer Kevin Murray was playing at the Guam Navy Golf Club shortly after the passage of a typhoon. On the 647 yard par 5 2nd, with a 40 mph wind at his back, he drove 387 yards down the fairway and followed this with a 260 yard 4-iron, which bounced, ran onto the green and into the hole, thus achieving the longest albatross (double eagle) on record at the time.
His effort has since been beaten twice on the 663 yard 18th hole at the Kapalua Plantation course in Hawaii, by professional Andy Bean in 1991 and amateur Brett Stowkowy in 2010.
