  Most golf holes played in a week-world record set by Tom Bucci

ALBANY, N.Y., USA -- An upstate New York golfer, Tom Bucci of Latham set the World Record for most golf holes played in a week, 1,800 holes.

  Bucci has been at the Albany Country Club each day playing 15 rounds at 18 holes a piece since starting last Saturday. "I don't run. I don't walk. It's my sport, so it's my vehicle," he said.

   Mornings are the toughest, according to Tom Bucci.
   "You get up in the morning and it's hard to get going," he said between shots Wednesday, a day that ended with another 15 rounds (270 holes) played.

   "Not a lot of people come out until around noontime, and I'm thinking there's no way I'm going to do this. As soon as noon hits and everybody starts coming out, it makes it so, so much easier -- not enjoyable, but so much easier."

  He said the left hand is weary from the force it receives with a normal golf swing. "I thought I'd be tired, but I didn't think I would be hurting," he said. "It's just golf. That's what I thought. Boy, was I wrong."

  Bucci said his other major issue has been a lack of sleep between rounds.

  He used the record attempt to raise money and awareness for the American Diabetes Association. It's an undertaking for his wife of 22 years who's been living with the disease.

  Tom Bucci says his rounds of golf netted more than $14,000.
