    Golfers play 110 holes in one day

    BEATRICE, Neb. - When a buddy said they couldn't do it — play six rounds of golf in one day — that was all the challenge they needed. At the Beatrice Country Club on Monday, Beatrice High School golf coach Dick Stuart, middle school teacher Ben Essam and golf pro Joel Brueggemann played 110 holes — two more than six rounds of 18 holes.

    "We can't remember if it was while we were selling fireworks or when we were out here playing golf," Stuart said, "but we just decided we should get up some morning and see how many holes we could play."

    "One hundred ten seemed like a good number," Stuart said. "We thought 110 sounded better than 108."

    The original goal was 108 holes, because friend Jim Edwards said they couldn't do it.

    Stuart, Essam and Brueggemann started their golf morning at 5:45 a.m. and finished at 9:15 p.m.

    "We played the first four holes in the fog," Essam said.

    For the six rounds, Brueggemann shot 431 — one under par of 432, which is six rounds on the par-72 course. His best round was a 68 on the fourth round.

    Stuart shot 446, and Essam 494.

    Although a world record was not their goal, they finished well short.

    With the aid of a golf cart, Robb James of Canada played 851 holes at Victoria Golf Course at Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, over 24 hours on June 21-22, 2004.

    The most holes played in 24 hours of walking is 401, a feat achieved by Australian Ian Colston at Bendigo Golf Club, Victoria, Australia, on Nov. 27-28, 1971.

    Re: Golfers play 110 holes in one day

    Must have been a slow news day....
    lets recap:

    No record
    No charity event
    The only reason they did this was because goober at the local filling station said they couldnt do it.

    and they made national news.....
    :

    ummmmm.....ok

    I bet the guy that cleaned 140 crappie at the fishcleaning station that same day is pi$$ed that he didnt even get a yahoo mention!
    I'd much rather see the Packers miss the playoffs because of their talent then because of their injuries.

    Re: Golfers play 110 holes in one day

    My father-in-law is visiting this weekend from Thailand.
    He wants to go golfing, I only golf like once ever 5-10 yrs.
    Maybe we can try to break the record.
    Is it possible to play golf without drinking beer?

    I think so, but the only people I've seen do it are either old and half-senile or they are getting paid.

    He's kind of old and drinks only single-malt scotch.
    I suppose we could polish off a $150 bottle of scotch while we spend the day looking for the balls I randomly place across the landscape.
    I'm a proponent of no exercise golf.
    A cart with a bar and food and hitting the damn ball every once in a while.

    No excercise golf is easy.
    You don't use clubs, just a cart and a ball.
    I don't think I need to explain anymore.

    That would be fun! I couldn't afford to try it though.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    NO!!!!

    You did not just say that.
    It is also not possible to ice fish without drinking, nor is it possible to fish period without drinking.

    Even if you dont like beer, you could at least flirt with the Beer Babe!!
