A RECORD breaking feat of playing 108 holes of golf and travelling 350 miles within 24 hours is being attempted today.
Potters Bar golfer - Alistair Hunter - as part of a team of four, is taking on the challenge to raise cash for Old Hatfield-based charity The Willow Foundation.
He and his group are hoping to become the first people to play all six English golf courses - Princes in Sandwich, Kent, then play Royal St Georges in Sandwich, Royal Cinque Ports in Deal, Royal Liverpool in Hoylake, Royal Birkdale in Southport, and Royal Lytham & St Annes - that have hosted the Open Championship in one day.
A twin-engine helicopter will jet the team across the country to achieve their one-day goal.
They will obviously be hoping to finish the task before tonight's US Open.
