    Golfing Ironman

    How many consecutive rounds of golf do you think you could play? Two or three? Sometimes I feel like one round is enough and I can't wait to get home.

    But golfing ironman Bob Kurtz managed to play 500 holes without stopping (yes, no sleep or rest) over the course of 39 hours.

    The obvious question is why and you won't be surprised to learn that it's for a good cause. Bob raised over $100,000 for charity. Not bad for a 68 year old!

    The blurb on Bob's site is quite hilarious:

    Combining the ball-striking strength of Vijay Singh, the fitness of Gary Player, and the intensity of Corey Pavin, he has utilized his golfing ability in a remarkable way.

    Bob played through the night - and shot respectable scores. He shot his age twice (rounds of 65 and 67); posted 72 or better 12 times; averaged 72.6 for his daylight rounds and 76.7 during the overnight rounds.
