1. Approach a golf club where you often play or are already a member, as they'll be most likely to support your challenge.
2. Ask permission from the golf club to tee off at first light. Make sure the course will be open. And remember to tell the course superintendent that you'll be there.
3. Book specific tee times for each round so you aren't held up. And get permission from the club to play through other players on the day.
4. Organise lunch with the club at a certain time. They might even provide it for free to show their support for your challenge.
5. Make your event the topic of conversation at your club by popping a poster on the notice board.
1. Start your challenge at first light.
2. Have a healthy breakfast before you start, a light lunch after two rounds and a snack before your final round. Take some bananas and cereal bars with you for an added superhero energy boost.
3. Drink lots of water, at least one bottle per round. And try to stay off the booze until the 73rd hole!
4. Make sure your golf shoes are comfortable and worn-in. And try to have a quick shower after two rounds, changing your shirt and socks. This will leave you feeling refreshed and raring to go again.
5. Play off the forward tees and don't spend time looking for lost balls - they are unlikely to score any way. As time is precious, the first person ready on each hole should tee off first.
