Did You Know? Par for the United States of America is...

Did u know

If you were to tee off from the coast of California and play your way across the United States to a hole cut on the shorelines of Florida ... what would be a par?

Well, thanks to Floyd Satterlee Rood, we have our answer: 114,737.

Rood teed off near the Pacific Ocean on September 14, 1963 and played through the countryside, traveling nearly 4,000 miles until he holed out near the Atlantic surf more than a year later on October 3, 1964.  It took him 114,737 strokes to complete his journey and he only lost 3,511 golf balls along the way.

Phew, talk about a long par-5.
