“Jürg tried to break the world record not only because of his love for golf and running but also because he wanted to raise public concern for the unfortunate through the Swiss Paralympic Committee.” The Guinness website offers recommendations.

The old record in the same category was recorded at 221 holes. In fact, Eric Byrnes – former American professional baseball player (MLB) also walked and finished a total of 245 holes on Half Moon Bay in San Francisco in April 2019. However, that achievement is not officially recognized. Even so, Byrnes continued to hit and finally got a Guinness record in the same place, but in the category “walking the most holes in 24 hours” – 420 holes.
