Here is your fun fitness fact brought to you by Crystal “The Pistol” Landers:

100 years ago, in 1919, Fred Knight of Philadelphia, combined ultrarunning with golf, playing “marathon golf.” He played 8 rounds of golf (144 holes) in a single day, walking/running about 35 miles, with the requirement to average less than 85 strokes per round. He established a new “American record” in “marathon golf” with an elapsed time of 13 hours, 35 minutes. 

Knight played pretty much non-stop, with “aid station” breaks totaling about an hour to eat breakfast and dinner, and for six breaks “to get a glass of milk into which was dropped a raw egg and to bind up a swollen wrist that he had sprained playing a sunken ball.”

He averaged about one stroke per minute, drove the ball out of bounds five times and into a creek five times, with only two birdies. It was thought that this record would last for years, but later in 1919, Eddie Styles startled the golfing world when he played ten rounds (40 miles) in a single day averaging less than 80 strokes per round. Their efforts kicked off the bizarre sport of “marathon golf.”
