Donnie Torres is hoping to squeeze in some golf tomorrow. By "some," he means 17 rounds.
Torres, the head professional at Los Alamos Golf Course, will play The Longest Day of Golf Thursday at LAGC. In doing so, he's hoping to raise close to $4,000 for charitable causes.
Doing the math, Torres will play 306 holes. If he can get started at around 5:30 a.m., he thinks he can wrap up before the sun sets. He will play exclusively on the front nine at LAGC and give himself credit for being "in the leather" when he nears cups.
It's a challenge — he's hoping to complete the Longest Day of Golf in about 700 swings, not counting putts — but one he feels he's ready for.
