September 29, 2011 at 4:13 AM (PT)
TRIBUNE Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO midday host JOHN WILLIAMS and a group of listeners will attempt to break the world record for the fastest round of golf on SATURDAY (10/1). "King JOHN & His Royal Court's Speed Golf World Record Challenge" will feature about 100 listeners racing around a course in DARIEN, IL playing speed golf in a relay format. The record is currently 7 minutes, 56 seconds.
"It's not just a world record we're going after. It's a stupid world record, so that's a natural for us," said WILLIAMS. "I think of this more as an excuse to have a beer by 9a."
