200!

Very jealous indeed..I'm an avid golfer from MN and used to be in the 80-100 rounds a year. A wife, a child, and a real job later, I'm lucky to squeak in a round a week. My handicap is higher, but it helps in the few tourneys I acrually play in. Keep on keepin' on for all us, Vern. Keep going low!

Thanks so much! Every day is a dream. Heading to the course now. Wish you and your family the best!

Vern

Family always comes first. I just designed things a little different! Wish you and your family the best and enjoy! Thanks for the reply!!

Wow! My hands are sore just thinking about 200 rounds in 6 months. One of my best friends owns the record of 611 set in 2011. He played all rounds walking and carrying his bag. http://topworldrecords.blogspot.com/2010/12/richard-lewis-played-600-rounds-in-year.html

Congrats Vurich, Love the cart and bag full of goodies....Enjoy your future rounds and hope you break the record...Congrats on you club championship also...

Hey, Fred!

I was inspired by your friend.  His was an amazing feat.  Walking for over 600 rounds is superhuman.  I won't break that this year, maybe next year!  Ha!  I hope you're doing well!  Thanks for the reply and best to you!

Hi, Ron!

Thanks so much!  I hope to purchase more Titleist products this fall!  Love everything Titleist.  I just bought a Titleist shag bag which is awesome and the backpack and briefcase look good.  Of course, the new 2013 balls are like crack to me.  I can never but enough.  There is nothing like the feel of a new prov1 to start off the day.  Thanks again and best to you always!

Good luck with that Vern. You're going to need to be in: 1. Really great shape (Richard used to swim 1/2 mile every morning for several years before the attempt) and 2. Eat a lot of food (he had to eat a large pizza every night day to have enough carbs to do it and 3. BE COMMITTED. What was even more amazing than his walking every one of the 611 rounds, he set records for most consecutive days playing 72, 54 and 36 holes, ALL IN THE TEXAS HEAT.

That's so awesome. I need to pick up the pace on my rounds.  I try to average 1 round a week, and so far I'm behind schedule.  My job gets in the way.  I just need to get out there and play after work, no matter how hot it is outside.

Congrats Vern.  Lucky  you.  Do you golf after work each day?

Hey Bryan!

I don't have a set schedule.  I get out whenever I can and some days I just can't make it, so I'll try and double up as many times as I can.  For instance, I played 36 holes Saturday and Sunday this last weekend just in case.  Slow play kills me as does the extreme heat and humidity we've had in Arizona this summer.  I never make a tee time and sometimes I'll have to wait a while to get out so I'll putt and chip until it's clear.

Thanks for the reply.

Vern

Hey Dallin!

The heat is definitely the worst element to play in.  I grew up in Michigan, so humidity and rain isn't that bad.  But when it's gets above 110, it's really difficult.  I've tried playing first thing in the mornings, but the humidity plus heat in Arizona this summer are tough.  I usually don't get out until the afternoon when the course is less crowded, but it's also the hottest, but I'd rather deal with heat than crowds.  I can't tell you how many times I've been dragging after a few holes, certain I could only get in 9.  But then I'll play one more hole, and find myself playing 18 and every single time I've powered through I've found gold in my game by pushing myself just a little.  The more you do, the more you can do.  

Keep playing well Dallin!

Vern

Awesome accomplishment, Vern!

Would live to play that much golf but I fear my wife might shoot me (which she has already threatened to do)!  I have 4 standing annual out of town tournaments each year and often end up fitting one or two more, not to mention the local ones, but I think I am pushing it with the family even as is.  I only play about 100 rounds a year and I get alot of flack for the volume of golf that I play at that level.  Fortunately in Texas we can play pretty much year-round as well.  It's hard to even get my head around 200 rounds in 6 months.  Maybe one day down the road.....

Good luck in hitting your goal of 600+ rounds in a year.  If anybody can do it, it soulds like your schedule sets up perfectly.  Keep us posted as you reaqch towards that goal! 

Vern, You need a golf cart air conditioner. I made a few of them last year and they take the edge off of the heat, so long as you can reload the ice after 9 holes.

Hey, Mike!

Thanks for the reply.  Things have been working out great so far.  It wasn't always that way.  I was in a hit and run accident after my 2nd year of college.  I barely survived.  Was given the last rites and didn't play golf again for almost 25 years.  I guess I'm making up for lost time.  I was sidelined by an elbow injury a few years ago from golf and a knee injury this year along with the flu twice!  Other wise I'd be much further along.  I'm just happy to be playing.  I'm really not out to play for the numbers, but just to play.  Enjoy yourself.  That's really the key.  I see so many unhappy golfers and wonder why they even play at all.  Oh, well.  To each his own.   Keep up the good work!
