GOLF CHALLENGE, 24 OCTOBER
Fresh from his success at the World Transplant Games, where he came 6th at gross in the individual Golf competition and 9th with his partner, David Lilley is now taking on a one man Golf Challenge at Retford Golf Club.
In a "Dawn til Dusk" he will attempt to play as much golf as he can in one day. We are asking people to support him by guessing how many strokes he will play during the day, how many pars he gets and how many steps he takes.
Normal rules of golf apply. Retford Golf Club has 18 holes and David will go round the course as many times as possible in order to play as many holes as he can. The length of the course is 5845 yards and he will ride on a buggy in between strokes.
For those of you who know about golf, the par of the course is 71 and David has a handicap of 13.
For non golfers, this means that if he played 4 full rounds plus 7 extra holes, he would aspire to do this with 312 strokes. Given his handicap, he could expect to get 5 pars per round, but this will vary depending upon his play on the day.
He normally takes 13000 steps in one normal round, but he will be riding in a buggy in between strokes. You need to guess how many steps he takes when out of the buggy.
Rules of entry
Minimum stake is £1 per guess per category.
A £20 voucher will be awarded for the nearest guess in each category. In the event of a tie all equal closest names will be entered into a draw.
Categories are: How many strokes taken in total, How many pars made, How many steps taken in total.
