Nolan Krentz is a golf nuts’ extra nuts. His nut level is somewhere between a Snickers or an Oh Henry, to put it in candybar terms.
Krentz is a member of Norsk Golf Club, Mt. Krentz, a member of Norsk Golf Club in Mt. He is on pace to exceed that number and is currently shooting for 18,000 holes.
Krentz stated, “The joke is that my mail should be delivered here.”
According to the website Wisconsin.Golf Krentz is a scratch golfer who wakes up before sunrise and plays as many as possible. He walks and uses a push cart while working at a grocery shop and as a coach for the Mount Horeb High School girls’ and boys’ golf teams.
Krentz played 17,766 holes in 2020. Krentz beat that record by 54 holes last year. He averaged 48.82 per round and played his final round Dec. 26. He stops when there is snow on the greens that prevents him from putting.
A plaque was presented by the Wisconsin State Golf Association to him in recognition of his dedication to the game.
Technically, the record of 17,820 holes does not qualify as a world record. Guinness Book of World Records still lists the 14,625 holes that Chris Adams of Canada played in 2012. Guinness requires that each round be recorded in a logbook. Witnesses are also required.
Krentz had played 15,426 golf holes in this year’s October 25th.
He said that there would be a time when he dials back. But not this year.
Record keeping is what the old saying goes.
