Swiss golfer Jürg Randegger has earned a place in the Guinness Book of World Records after playing 252 holes in 12 hours at Ostschweizerischen Golf Club, St. Gallen, Switzerland, on May 21.

“Jürg attempted this record not only for his love of running and golf but also to bring awareness to the Special Olympics Switzerland that help people, through the power of sports, with intellectual disabilities,” Guinness World Records said in announcing the record.

Randegger played the entire course, on foot, 14 times in 12 hours to set the record as use of a golf cart was banned for the feat, according to Guinness rules.
