Bob Kurtz:Golfs "Iron Man"






                          GOLF’S IRONMAN TO VISIT UPSTATE NEW YORK


        Why does “Golf’s Ironman,” Bob Kurtz, continue to set golf endurance records?  “Wherever

and whenever I can do my part to help ease the plight of hurting children, it’s worth the blood,

sweat, and blisters,” affirmed the Ironman.

         One of the significant efforts to help abused children is an upcoming golf marathon event

in Syracuse, New York to benefit the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center.  Perry Noun, the

event coordinator, plans to have 100 golfers play 100 holes as a fundraising effort on May 23.

         Two weeks before the marathon, Kurtz the Ironman, will play his own 100 hole exhibition at

Timber Banks Golf Club in Syracuse to bring attention to both the challenge of addressing the problem of

child abuse and neglect and also publicize the “100 Golfers for Kids” fundraiser.

          “Golf’s Ironman” will celebrate his 76th birthday in May but shows no signs of slowing down…

but then, he IS the Ironman.

*In addition to the two official GWR marks, Golf's Ironman, is also recognized for playing 500 consecutive holes without rest, completing 72 holes of golf in 3 hours and five minutes, and scoring a 71 (two strokes below his age) in 42 minutes.



75-A Diamond Jubilee

The Sunbelt Senior Professional Golf Tour will recognize and honor "Golf's Ironman"

with a Pro-Pro Golf Event on May 22, at Terri Pines Country Club in Cullman, Alabama.

Among Bob's fellow competitors on the Sunbelt Senior Tour are such golfing greats as

Danny Edwards, Marco Dawson, Anders Forsbrand, and Blaine McAllister.


For more than a decade Bob Kurtz has set multiple world records which are included in Guinness World Records as well

as Ripley's "Believe It Or Not."  All marathons were organized to raise monies for the children's charity,

"Ministries To Children."  For all of 2016, MTC will honor Bob for his dedication to hurting children and will also

celebrate his 75th year.*
