Matt's a mate if mine and I'll be caddying for him on his final 2 rounds. 

10 rounds is an incredible target, to put it in context,  he'll be running approx. 45 miles on hilly terrain whilst carrying some golf clubs and having to stop every 150 to 200 yards. 

I'm sure he'd appreciate any donations and he is a fellow Owl. The charity was chosen as a mutual friend received fantastic help from the ICU recently.

We once did a similar thing for Macmillan

 

We did 4 rounds and picked a shorter flatter course ( Thorne) we started at first light and it was tough ,so good luck to Matt with this ,he will deserve every penny

How long should it take? 

 

About 40 hours. I guess he'll be alone though, so less, still....

He's starting at 4.15am and hoping to finish about 9pm before consuming his own bodyweight in Guinness.

As long as I get decent weather on the day I’m confident I’ll do it.  All this rain isn’t helping but the forecast for Friday is improving all the time.

If he’s anything like me, bet he sits in the bath afterwards thinking

 

”If only I didn’t miss that 3 footer on the 134th”

You would hope by his fifth round he's got an idea about how the greens are running. 

Although I've been playing for 40 years and can't putt for toffee.

Putted like a God this morning.

 

Until a 3 putt on 17 and a 4 putt on 18.

 

I hate golf.

Sounds like you'll be back soon.

Im looking forward to my 16y old giving me another whooping at Hallamshire in a couple of weeks. Nothing like spending half a day looking for lost balls while your offsprings hits every drive straight down the middle.

Yes I was a member in my youth.  Everyone used to say if you can play off 16 at Hallamshire it can play off 6 anywhere else.

 

I'm yet to see that,
