Golf’s longest hole completes after 80 days

The world’s longest hole in Golf has been covered after a staggering 80 days by Adam Rolston. Mt Bogd Golf Club in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia witnessed this record when Rolston finally slotted ball home after an astounding 20,093 shots. He covered more than 2000 kilometres in this process. With the weather, the course and everything against Rolston it was hardly what one would call a smooth journey. Rolston expected the course to be completed around 14,000 shots, but he went 6093 shots over par. Every day was a challenge for the golfer as well as his caddie Ron Rutland. Adam would end up hitting about 250 shots on the uneven terrain while his caddie carried a 100kg cart stocked with equipment’s, food and water. At the end of 80 days, Rutland ended up losing 16kgs of weight. The weather proved to be quite the troublemaker as Rolston claims he didn’t see the sun for four days. The boggy landscape proved to be very challenging as they hardly got the cart moving and had to set up tents amidst pouring rain. They also faced injuries but continued on their journey and completed it for a good cause. The money raised by this will go into Laureus Sport for Good.
