54-Hole Day


Recommended Posts

I just got a crazy idea. I played 36 in a day earlier this week riding both rounds, and I honestly wasn’t tired at all, so I was thinking about doing 54 in a day, with a rough timeline:

7:30- First round 

11:15- Break

12:00- Second round

3:45- Break

4:30- Third round

I’m thinking it would probably be best to stick to the same course in all three rounds, otherwise I’ll be competing with daylight. Also, I’m planning to take a cart for at least two of the three rounds, most likely all three.

My logic with four and a half hours between tee times is pretty simple: at my home course (which is where I’ll be playing all three rounds), just about everyone plays at a good pace, and nine times out of ten I can get around in four hours or less. 

What do y’all think? Anyone else done this?

We used to do 54 frequently when I was single in my 20's and 30's. Walking, carrying my bag. (Not very hilly courses). Quite doable if you are in any kind of halfway decent shape.

I had a two month period of my life in second quarter 2008 where I played 36 holes every Monday, walking, carrying my bag.  I was a lot younger then (approximately thirteen years younger than I am now).  One of those rounds was my first ever sub-90 round.

I've never done 54.  I might try this summer;  maybe while visiting my parents (some courses near them have specials this time of year most years and I imagine they'll continue to do so this year).

I once participated in a large 54 hole outing (with carts) at 3 different courses requiring minor travel in between each. . Definitely doable. I have walked 36 many times.

I don't think I could stay mentally sharp enough to enjoy it. Can I ask why?!

I’ve done 54 on the same course a couple of times.   Always cart because they weren’t easily walkable.  I was able to keep my focus because my third round of the day was the best.  

lot of weekends in my 20s, in walked and carried my bag for 36 each day.

I've played 54 in the past on an unlimited golf package at Boyne in Northern MI.  It's really not that tough, especially if you're not travelling much between courses.  You do however need to do two things.  First you obviously need to get an early start.  Second, you need to catch the courses when they aren't terribly busy.  You aren't going to get in 54 holes with 5+ hour rounds (frankly why would you even want to if that were the case...).  

That was all when I was in my 20s and early 30s.  These days, my preference is to just play 18-36 holes and find something else enjoyable/relaxing to do the rest of the time.

    • Day 12 Chipping practice into a net.
    • What length do you play your driver?  Most drivers come standard from the shop well over 45" (45.5, 45.75, etc).  Mine was fitted right at 45"
    • This is a good publicity stunt, though, unlike that Koepka rivalry crap. People have been comparing LD guys to PGA Tour guys forever, now we can actually see one in a competition.
    • I'm a truck driver and every now and then, I stop by a hospital or reference lab and repair a blood bank analyzer.  Well, at least that's how it feels. 😉  I'm actually a field service engineer for a blood bank analyzer company, but I spend as much time driving to accounts as in them.  My 3 1/2 year old pickup has 118k miles on it already. (We drive our own vehicles and get a stipend to make up for it.) I hope to be retired and a full-time golf bum in the not-to-distant future!
    • Saw this a couple of days ago, not sure if it should have its own thread or not, but thought this was a good a place as any to post. I thought for sure there would already be a post on it, but I didn’t see one.     Bryson wrecking hands in long-drive prep Bryson DeChambeau has received some battle scars while training for the Ryder Cup and... Any thoughts on how he’ll do? Embarrass himself or make a decent showing?    I’d assume he’d had the least problem putting them “in the grid,” uncertain how he’ll measure up to their distances. I’d guess he feels that he would make a good showing so as to not embarrass himself…unless it’s all just another publicity stunt for the $40M bonus prize for the whole social media thing
