How does playing 11 rounds of golf in 11 hours sound to you? That’s exactly what Mark Chapman intends on doing on Veteran’s Day – November 11th, 2011.
The man behind the Myrtle Beach golf marathon is Mr. Chapman, a 42 year-old student at The Golf Academy of America – Myrtle Beach.
Mark is no stranger to a challenge, being a 21-year veteran of the Air Force and has also served in operation Iraqi Freedom.
Unsurprisingly, his efforts are all for a good cause: raising money to benefit the Salute Military Golf Association and the Wounded Warrior Project. Mark’s journey will take place at Waterway Hills Golf Club in Myrtle Beach. Beginning at 6:43 a.m, he will attempt to complete 11 rounds of golf by 5:16 p.m. That’s an astonishing 198 holes at a mind-blowing pace of 58 minutes per round!
However, Chapman intends on playing all 11 rounds on the Oaks Nine course. He’ll have to play it a whopping 22 times to accomplish his goal.
