WJR and Boyne Mountain to attempt fastest round of golf on July 20
News-talk WJR AM 760 and Boyne are again attempting to break the Guinness World Record™ for the Fastest Round of Golf. This year's attempt will take place on Sunday, July 20, 2008 from 9 AM -12 PM on The Alpine course at Boyne Mountain.
The event format requires golfers to be strategically placed on the course's tee boxes, along the fairways and on the greens. The timing begins once the opening tee-ball is struck, with golfers in the fairway running to hit the ball as soon as it comes to rest. As golfers on the green sink the putt, a player on the next hole immediately hits the next tee shot.
The current record is 8 minutes, 47 seconds and was set at Bridlewood Golf Club in Flower Mound, Texas.
The 16th annual Tournament of Champions begins July 21st at Boyne Mountain and numerous professional players have already signed up to be a part of the fastest round challenge. A minimum of three attempts will be made within the allotted three hour time period. Hopes are high that together - Boyne, WJR and Michigan golfers will generate additional exposure for the state's incredible courses and make Boyne Mountain home of the world's Fastest Round of Golf.
