Story

On 21 June 2017, I will attempt to play 10 rounds of golf in one day at Strathaven Golf Club in Central Scotland.

10 rounds may not sound like much to a non-golfer; however, it'll mean: walking over 60 miles (that's more than a double marathon), hitting around 750 - 800 shots all while carrying my golf bag which weighs around 12kg (almost 2 stone).

A normal round of golf takes approximately 4 hours - in order to complete the challenge in the available light I'll need to hit my first shot around 3am and average no more than 1 hour 48 minutes per round (with no breaks) to ensure I hit my last shot before the light runs out 18 hours later!!

Each round I'll be joined by different friends, including 4 PGA Golf Professionals and a former Ladies European Tour player. I'm hoping that their fresh legs and motivation will keep my morale from crashing.

Like / Follow the challenge on social media to follow the progress of my training, fundraising and, of course, the 10 rounds:

There's no denying it's going to be tough but the hospital's young patients have far harder and longer battles to face.

Please, please help me raise the £10,000 target for a truly deserving cause.

Thanks,

Scott!
