I used a golf cart this time to cover the six plus miles per round. Maybe next time I'll try it on foot but 100 holes is at least 33 miles total so I would have to seriously train to be successful

My Golf Book, Inc., President, Chris Bystriansky, (pronounced "By stran ski") played 100 holes of golf on Monday, August 25, 2008 to attain a golf endurance goal set earlier this year. Bystriansky played the five full rounds plus ten more holes on his home course, the Houstonian Golf & Country Club in Richmond, Texas.
The 100-hole Century Round started at 6:50 a.m. and finished at 6:34 p.m. The first round took 1:50, the second round took 1:55; the third round took 2:01; the fourth round took 2:05; the fifth round took 2:00 and the last 10 holes took 1:09. Breaks of approximately ten minutes were taken between rounds to seek shelter from the mid-90 degree heat.
Bystriansky, a 6 handicap, shot a total score of 457, which was 57 over par, on the 38,576 yard layout. He carded 6 birdies, 43 pars, 39 bogeys and 12 double bogeys. Bunkers came into play twenty times. He hit 45 of 78 fairways (58%), 50 of 100 greens (50%) and had 192 putts (1.92 putts per hole). Two different sets of tees were used throughout the day. From 6,846 yards, Bystriansky shot 81, 82, 79 and then was 8 over par for the last ten holes. From 7,110 yards, Bystriansky shot 81 and 86.
"I used a golf cart this time to cover the six plus miles per round. Maybe next time I'll try it on foot but 100 holes is at least 33 miles total so I would have to seriously train to be successful," says Bystriansky. "We may even turn this into a charity event next year. I have already received calls from people wanting to play the 100 holes next year."
The Century Round was a goal which Bystriansky set in early 2008 after participating in 100-mile cycling events. The Century Round is just the beginning of Bystriansky's list of golf-related goals. Other goals listed in his copy of My Golf Book include reducing his handicap to 0, hitting 18 of 18 greens in regulation, and playing rounds with Sergio Garcia, Lee Trevino and Nancy Lopez.
Bystriansky thinks that golf is more than simply going out and playing 18 holes of stroke play. "I want to see and experience a lot of different things related to golf. For example, I think it would be incredible to tee off at sunrise on the east coast, jump on a plane and then finish a round on the west coast at sunset all on the same day. Now that's what I call a golf experience."
These types of goals and experiences can be planned and remembered using My Golf Book, which is a structured book for golfers used to record various types of information including goals, travel ideas, swing tips, and anything else golfers learn about their games during a lesson, a round or otherwise. The company also offers an interactive website, http://www.mygolfbook.com, where golfers can get professional tips, travel ideas and communicate with other golfers.
Chris Bystriansky is a former corporate attorney. He is an avid cyclist and is the head instructor of an Aikido martial arts program in Katy, Texas. He is currently pursuing an MBA from the University of Chicago Graduate School of Business.
