I am a 22-hadicap golfer but a good distance runner (7 handicap
I'd say). I've heard of a variant of our beloved game in which one runs
around the course and adds the number of strokes taken to the number of
minutes taken for the round.
Does anybody know of any tournaments played in this manner?
What is the record score for this?
Finding the correct strategic balance between playing fast and
keeping the number of strokes reasonable would be a lot of fun.
Especially if one has to decide how many clubs to carry. Assuming that
one had to carry your own clubs.
Really I'm just looking for a game that I might be good at, Even if I
have to invent one.
