Professional Golf Photographer, Patrick Koenig, Breaks World Record for Most Golf Courses Played in One Year
Sporting Breakfast Balls Apparel Throughout His Journey, Record Achieved After Only 287 Days; Targets 500 Total Courses
HOBOKEN, N.J., Oct. 17, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Today, apparel and lifestyle company, RSVLTS (rose-uh-velts), and its Breakfast Balls golf brand, are thrilled to announce that their long-term collaborator, Patrick Koenig, has achieved the world record for the most 18 hole golf courses played in one year: 450 total.
Earlier today at Omni Interlocken Golf Club, Patrick achieved the world record for the most 18 hole golf courses played in 365 days – 450 total – with the hopes of ultimately eclipsing 500+ at the end of his year-long journey that started on January 3, 2023. The previous world record of 449 was held by Cathie and Jonathan Weaver for more than 14 years, which until today was a title they achieved on March 31, 2009.
“I’ve had this vision for years and it’s been an epic journey on the road with the RGV to get to this moment, and I’m truly very grateful to make this record happen around some great friends and family,” said Patrick Koenig, world record holding golfer and professional photographer. “It’s quite a feeling to do something in golf that no one else has ever done before, and I look forward to extending my world record mark over the next few months.”
All proceeds raised during Patrick’s RGV (Rec Golf Vehicle) Tour to reach this mark will go to his charity of choice: First Tee of Greater Seattle (among other local charities in the states he’s played), which thus far has raised more than $30,000. Along the tour, Patrick has golfed in 39 states and three countries, partnered with marquee brands (such as Breakfast Balls apparel, Golf GameBook, Ecco Golf & Stewart Golf), and played with notable golfers to help raise awareness and charitable funds, including: Len Mattaice, Paige Spraniac and Rich Beem.
“This day has been a long time coming, and we couldn’t be more proud of Patrick for his major accomplishment and appreciate him having Breakfast Balls join alongside the journey,” said Ben Douglass, Brand Director for Breakfast Balls. “Patrick has been rocking our gear at pretty much every step along the way, so it’s been an honor watching his record-breaking RGV tour firsthand and through his expert lens, but most especially we’re happy for all the fantastic things he’d done for his charity along the way too!”
Moments after the world record was achieved, Patrick was presented with a commemorative, one-of-a-kind Breakfast Balls quarter zip that donned the record breaking 450 mark (pictured) by Douglass, as well as other items and contributions from his partners to go toward his ongoing charitable efforts.
