By noon, the duo were more than halfway towards their goal of 200 holes in a day. “We’ll break the record, for sure,” said Pearcey.

Jackson, the club pro, and Pearcey, the men’s club captain, started golfing early in the morning and they were set to go until nightfall as part of the Golfathon for ALS — a fundraiser put on the PGA of B.C. to raise money for ALS research.

The duo hit 201 holes when a thunderstorm rolled in, shutting them down for the day. Still, despite the early end, they broke the club record set by Pearcey and Greg Austin last year.
