72 holes in a day

On Saturday 23rd June Iain Wallace organised a group to play 72 holes in a day at Kenilworth in aid of Macmillan Nurses, the third time that he has done so.

He was joined by Ash Saiyai and Richard Glenn who played all 72 holes with him and the fourth place was taken by a relay of Chris Peake, Ravi Baga, Jim McCarthy and John Carlin Senior.

They started at 6.00 in the morning,

played straight through at 8.35,

had a break for lunch:

played straight through again and got to the 73rd at 7.15.  Interesting that Johnny looks the most tired of them all?

Their scores based on the best two stableford points to count on full handicap were 79, 83, 83 and 86 and astonishingly they scored 45 points on the last 9 holes which they attributed to Ash taking 60 holes to warm up.

Richard had a side bet, which he won, as to whether he could go round with the same ball and here he is with it to prove it, although there are a few tree marks on it:

                        

In total between them they had 24 birdies, of which Richard got 15 – his tee shot on the 7th hole in the first round is shown above:

Despite this impressive display and his prodigious driving distance, the closest he got to the 14th green in four goes was the 13th fairway, so there is hope for us all.

Well done to all of them, it is no mean feat and Iain recorded 51,000 steps on his fitbit.  The main purpose was to raise money for Macmillan Nurses and it looks like they may have just exceeded their target of £1,000.  If you haven’t already donated and would like to, there is a sheet in the pro shop and they have a just giving web page:
