On 21 June 2017, I will attempt to play 10 rounds of golf in one day at Strathaven Golf Club in Central Scotland to raise money for the Royal Hospital for Sick Children.

Each round I'll be accompanied by 2 or 3 friends, including 4 PGA Professional Golfers and a former Ladies European Tour Professional.

10 Rounds may not sound like much to a non-golfer; however, it'll mean walking over 60 miles (that's more than a double marathon) and hitting around 750 - 800 shots all while carrying a golf bag weighing in at around 12kg (almost 2 stone).

A normal round of golf takes about 4 hours but, in order to complete the challenge in the available light, I'll need to start at first light (around 3am) and average no more than 1 hour 48 minutes per round (with no breaks) in order to ensure I finish before the light runs out (around 10pm)!!

There's no denying it's going to be tough but the hospital's children and young people have far longer and harder battles to face.

The Royal Hospital for Sick Children is Scotland's largest children's hospital. Each year, 168,000 babies, children and young people from across Scotland pass through its doors.

The hospital's charity funds projects such as: assisting with purchasing the latest medical equipment, funding research, improving family support services or developing innovative play programmes.

The charity requires money to bring their projects to fruition and so I've set an ambitious target of raising £10,000.

About Me

Scott Hamilton

I turn 30 on January 1st, 2017 and to mark my 30th year I decided to set myself the gruelling challenge of playing 10 rounds of golf in one day to raise £10,000 for the charity supporting the Royal Hospital for Sick Children .

In 2004 I tore the ACL ligament in my left knee during my time studying and playing golf in the United States. The damage has not only caused problems in my game but will also make this whole experience doubly hard - in addition to worrying about normal things like distance and endurance, I'll also need to be wary of my knee having to turn through around 750-800 shots!

I've played at Strathaven Golf Club since I was 11 and I was a member of the Professional staff there for 5 years. Throughout that time I've made lifelong friends from both playing and working in the sport and I'm really pleased a number of them will join me for a couple of rounds each during the challenge. I'm hoping their fresh legs and motivation will help keep me going during the hard times of the 18 hour ordeal.
