With that being said, I know 1305 can be beat, I guess we'll see if it happens this weekend. And remember everybody, until about 3 years ago, the record for most holes in a day was a "measly" 835.
exactly- that's a lot of ground to catch up on foot even if you are sprinting and when I looked at it I assumed lines would not be straight to and from targets and tees which makes it even worse/further the longer it goes on...

But he is an 18-year-old college student at UCSB. Both his age, and his party school stamina, bode well for him.

This is something I'm interested in as well.

Must be a permanent course.
Must be played in it's entirety, in order.
24 hour record? yes, it must be played in 24 hours continuously (running clock).
It must be a course recognized by the country's governing body, so it must be listed on PDGA.com, basically.

^ Chilly perhaps, but 38 degrees isn't that cold when you're active.

Oh, no question, it's not THAT bad. I used to do an annual frisbee golf marathon to raise money for Diabetes research. Twice I got scared off the course by lightning, and once I got crushed by 120 degrees with 99% humidity (message board weather -- actuals were about 92 degrees with dewpoints in the high 70s). Anyway, yeah, 40-60 degrees is preferred to that, as long as there isn't big wind or precip.
