Group of area kids playing 1,000 holes of golf for a good cause

MADISON, Wis. — A group of area kids are putting in a long day on local greens for a good cause Monday.

Alex and Luke Weiss and Brett and Kade Wieland will attempt to play 250 holes of golf — or 1,000 holes total — over the course of 15 hours to benefit the Wisconsin PGA Junior Foundation.

The group of kids, who are all between the ages of 12 and 16, finished 624 holes as part of a charity drive last year.

“I started myself when I was like 8 (years old), with 54 holes and then every year I’ve been getting more and more, and a few years ago I started doing the fundraiser aspect and invited Brett and my friends to do it,” Alex Weiss said.

On top of the eye-popping number of holes they’re attempting to play, they’re also trying to break a record for the fastest round played at 26 minutes and 37 seconds.
