BRACKEN Ghyll’s Will Stoker played six rounds in a day at his home course to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support charity, and to help defray the cost of the club’s development of their changing facilities.
He teed off at 3.50am and by 10am had played three rounds.
Stoker completed the 108 holes at 8pm, having taken just a few stops during the day to eat and drink.
So far he has raised almost £600 to be split between Macmillan Cancer Support and the club.
Next Friday, Hornsea’s Joe Palmer and East Riding match play champion Leigh Gawley will attempt to play 150 holes in a day to raise funds for CRY, a charity which works to reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death.
Palmer and Gawley will undertake the marathon in memory of Hornsea schoolboy Josh Fell, who collapsed and died in 2011 from a previously undiagnosed heart condition.
Josh’s father, Richard, has campaigned tirelessly for the last five years to help provide heart screening for the young and has helped raise over £100,000.
