The day, which was undertaken to raise awareness for Tommy’s Honour Education Trust, began at 4:40am when the first tee shot was hit at Prestwick and ended in St Andrews.
“The inspiration for this challenge came about through building up my knowledge of our Scottish golfing pioneers, and the contribution their legacy made towards shaping the modern game of golf which is now enjoyed by over 60 million golfers worldwide,” said William Lumsden, the charity founder.
“As the custodians of the game of golf
we have a responsibility to preserve the legacy of these remarkable men. By working in partnership with local authorities and golf clubs we can inspire children to become pioneers of their own path in life
as they make their own way in today’s society.”
The event got the support of all club professionals at the venues visited.
“I was honoured to offer my full support through taking part in this incredible challenge,” said David Fleming, head professional at Prestwick Golf Club. “Teeing off at 4.30am on the west coast at Prestwick, travelling to Musselburgh, North Berwick and finishing in St Andrews was certainly a journey to remember.”
