Swiss golfer breaks record for most holes played in a day
During the attempt, Jürg ran 93km, took 1,348 strokes, lost 8 balls and had 5 birdies. He did this with the help of just a 7-iron.
Jürg attempted this record not only for his love of running and golf, but also to bring awareness to the Special Olympics Switzerland, a Swiss-based charity which provides year-round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. Those activities give them continuing opportunities to develop physical fitness, demonstrate courage, experience joy and participate in a sharing of skills and friendship.
