For most golfers losing 509 balls in one game is just too much. They either go home or quit the sport altogether. Not so for the next person entering the ranks of kickass personalities: André Tolmé, the man who golfed across Mongolia.
During his extraordinary expedition Andre walked 1,320 miles (2,100 km) across the country of Mongolia while hitting a golf ball. He divided the country into 18 holes which followed dirt tracks, rivers, and nomadic herding trails from east to west across the land once ruled by Genghis Khan.
Along the way he taught many a Mongolian the art of golfing and spontaneous mini-golf sessions made him numerous new friends.
It took Andre 90 days and 12.170 hits with his 3-iron to complete the Mongolian golf course of 2.3 million yards while battling fierce Siberian winds. He schlepped his own food and water and carried more than 500 spare balls.
Anyone up for improving their handicap in Mongolia!?
