St. Andrew's to Play Host to Historic 189-Hole Challenge

Yep, that's 189 holes (11 courses) of golf in a calendar day... playing as a fourball... playing on foot... and playing for charity. Four golfing lunatics have decided to up the ante from 2007 (when three of them played the 10 St. Andrew's courses), as the Castle golf course has since been added.

Here's a link to the Golfshake website and a more detailed article about the event/charity/nutters.

And if you're trying to work out what this all equates to, it's this: assuming they tee off at 3.15am and finish at 11.15pm, they'll be playing for 20 hours, which means each of the 189 holes will take 6 minutes and 20 seconds to play... compare that with your home club's Saturday fourball!

Follow the link and help the guys raise money for charity, or at least send them some vaseline for the chafing.
