Paul Webb Plays 63 Holes on 63rd Birthday
When San Clemente resident Paul Webb answered the phone the morning of Nov. 29, he was out of breath. He was in the middle of doing a set of sit-ups and needed a minute to lower his heart rate so he could describe what took place one day prior.
Webb turned 63 years old on Nov. 28, and he set out to play 63 holes of golf at Bella Collina Towne & Golf Club in one day to commemorate it. Not only did he want to play a marathon day of golf, he wanted to run all 63 holes.
Webb, who is a motivational speaker and fitness trainer by trade, got up at the crack of dawn and ran the first 27 holes. Cramps began to set in, so he jumped in a golf cart and continued playing. After an hour, he was good to go and set back out on foot, finishing his day just before the sun set.
“Fatigue hit, and I thought I was done,” Webb said with a laugh. “But I stayed with it and finished in seven hours and 24 minutes.”
Webb’s score actually improved as the day went on. He carded scores of 92, 88 and 86, respectively, before finishing the final nine holes.
The feat is just another in a long list of physical accomplishments for Webb, who tries to do something special on his birthday every year. When he turned 50, he paddled on his surfboard from Bolsa Chica State Beach to the San Clemente Pier.
“I’m a motivational speaker so I thought I might as well live the lifestyle. Every day I work out, and when I’m not doing those things, I’m inspiring people to be better than they think they can be,” Webb said.
