Dallas Golfer Sets World Record for Rounds

On Sunday, when the frost melted off the TPC Four Seasons at Las Colinas near Dallas, Richard Lewis teed off on his 600th round of the year.

Golfers talk about the grind. Could be a hole. A round. A tournament.

For Lewis, the grind has been a year. In a year of weather extremes, he's smashing the Guinness Book of World Records for most golf played in a year. The previous record was 586 rounds.

No matter what Mother Nature dishes out, Lewis, 64, carries an old Odyssey putter and a set of Clevelands or Taylor Burners in the same Sun Mountain bag and keeps hoofing.
