Now we all know that the American kamikaze tours are well able to take in 36 holes a day, but not for 22 days straight, and not considering everything else that Wes has planned.
His website bears testament to his ambitions. The scratch golfer is raising money for charity, he's taking photographs and video everywhere he goes, he's blogging, he's writing a book and he's driving a rental car around the entire perimeter of Ireland. Oh, and he'll be driving from The Island to Lough Erne and then back to Dublin so he can attend the Roger Waters - The Wall concert. There's some sightseeing too as well as watching the All Ireland Hurling Final. I'm not sure when he's going to get time to sleep, if he sleeps at all. I imagine he will be one exhausted golfer on the flight home to the USA on Sunday 29th September.
You'll find his full schedule here (scroll down below the map).
He's hoping to sell some of his photographs too, so check out the impressive rig that he's created for his Sun Mountain Micro-Cart (trolley). There's a camera, a video and an extendable pole that can take photos from 15 feet up. He's converted a ball retriever for that purpose. He's got a bigger camera as well, and with some of the stunning Irish vitas he's going to encounter, he'll need a wide, wide lens!

waters of Adare, Mount Juliet or Lough Erne

Keep up to date with how he's doing by visiting his website: 30 Shades of Green and if you want to donate to one of his chosen charities, there's a page for that too.
