New World Record in Golf

My buddy, Robb James, just set the world record for the most amount of holes golfed in a 24 hour period. He golfed 851 holes at the Victoria golf course here in Edmonton (where he is the assistant pro). The old record was 846, set by a guy from Idaho (I think). He started at 8:00am yesterday and finished up about two hours ago. I don't know the stats yet but his scoring average will probably be in the mid to high 70s. Par was 68. At one point, he hit consecutive rounds of 68 & 69...not bad for 28 minutes per round.

I'm so tired, I was helping out with the event for about 18 of the last 24 hours. I had to rush into work just after he finished.

b.t.w. He was raising money for Cancer research. His web site is www.golfforthecure.com

Congrats, that's crazy!!! Good to hear it was for a good cause. Was a rep from the Guiness book there?

I'm not sure if Guinness had a rep there but, having made three previous attempts, we have everything officially documented etc.

I'm sure it has to be reviewed by the Guinness people but everything should be in order.
