The Marathon and The SprintTravel With Intrepid Golfer Around The USA And Then Around The World… Teeing it up in the rain in Connecticut on May 1, 2012 and finishing in Alaska under a sparkling sun on June 19, Harry Scott played a round of golf in each of the 50 states in the USA in 50 consecutive days.

The reader can ride alongside Harry day after day across the country while playing 18 holes every day. Following this golf “marathon”, the next year on September 2, 2013 Harry played a round of golf in Australia and then for 6 consecutive days “sprinted” around the world while stopping to play 18 holes in each of the 6 continents that have golf courses.

You can experience the various red-eye flights, harrowing time attempting to get to the course in troubled Egypt and having to walk the most mountainous of golf courses on the last day of the trip. The final day was spent in the high mountains of Venezuela in South America.
