Among the numeric highlights offered by Byrnes:

  • 168 – highest round score
  • 14,367 – calories burned
  • 17.5  –  holes per hour
  • 12 – pieces of bacon
  • 12  – chocolate peanut butter bunnies

The biggest number for Byrnes is likely the $50,000 raised for the “Let Them Play Foundation,” which is Byrnes’ charity of choice.

Byrnes also Tweeted an image of the Strava breakdown of his 24-hour run that took place from 7 a.m. Monday-Tuesday Pacific time.

By the way, you read that right in his Tweet: 3.4 minutes per hole.

That’s 204 seconds.

Per hole.

If only, PGA Tour.

If only.
