A golfer has become the first person ever to hit balls the entire length of the UK - doing more than 250,000 shots and losing nearly 1,000 balls. David Sullivan, 58, spent ten weeks walking from Land's End to John o' Groats with two clubs and a bag of 50 balls. He walked and putted the entire journey - teeing off every morning before hunkering down in a pop up tent, treating himself to the occasional B&B. Roofing business owner David covered between seven and 30 miles a day and lost 942 golf balls along roads and tracks. David, from Oxted, Surrey, said: "It's been such a journey. "I feel so lucky that I've met kind and generous people, and had some life-changing experiences with them. "We're lucky that in Great Britain we have people like this. "I lost 942 golf balls but showed CPR to over 30,000 people." David's mission to learn CPR began when his golf buddy Sean Moor, 42, died of a heart attack while playing around seven years ago.
