Noblesville…Too hot to play 18 holes of golf? Not for Purgatory GC’s head professional Jon Stutz who played 108 holes and 42,187 yards Thursday at Noblesville’s Purgatory GC in a fund raising effort for the Indiana Golf Foundation and Autistic Awareness.
Stutz started the day at 7 am and played straight through ending after 9 pm despite eight hours of his 14 hour round with temperatures in the 90’s. “You’d think I could have chosen a better day,” said Stutz.
His father Jim Stutz drove the cart, offered support, putting advice and 20 bottles of water along the way.
Playing the variety of tees at Purgatory, Stutz averaged under 73 strokes and played just one ball for the day. “Both of us were mighty wore out at the end of the day,” joked Stutz, having raised over a $1,000 for the two charities.
