Thanks for all the comments of you non-believers… including Mr. Kener who called to check on the status mid-trip! Can’t tell if that was disappointment or shock in his voice when he heard ZERO rounds… maybe both!
It is February 1st and we are off to Hawaii until the 12th. Going to stay at 75 rounds and having walked about a third of the miles between our house in Connecticut and our house in Austin. Planning on not playing any golf while there. Several people have questioned whether this is even possible!
The feet (especially one foot in particular) need the rest and so… maybe a completely golf free vacation! Anyone want to weigh in on whether you believe Barry can go zero-golf for 12 days?
Today was the day Barry broke the 500 miles walking mark! His brand new Titleist golf bag is already fraying, and his feet are sore. (imagine!)
Nothing a little (very little) rest and epsom salts won’t take care of….
Played 63 holes with the same golf ball, affectionately known as “Titie 3” (pronounced tie-tee for the uninitiated). It is a found ball with a Lexus Logo, if anyone is missing one!
63 holes helps with the pace significantly, but the feet are hurting….. That would be 17.5 rounds ahead of pace!
The weather has been so nice that it has been difficult not to go hard and get ahead of “pace”.
The numbers explain the foot aches:
2802 Strokes 105.9 Hours 35 Rounds 630 Holes Walked 258.85 Miles 18.5 Miles Avg/Day
27.5 Rounds and 202 miles

And so it begins.. Check back here to watch the progress of one dedicated golfer, trying to set the record for most rounds played in a year…walking!
