Tom Bucci makes history for a good cause

The pursuit of the record ended shortly before 2:30 p.m. last Saturday when Bucci sank a par putt on the ninth hole to complete his 1,801st hole.

"I didn't really think about the physical toll because emotionally I was so relieved that it was over," said Bucci.

Bucci's pursuit of the record may have ended, but his pursuit of raising money for the JDRF and the ADA isn't. As of Monday evening, more than $15,700 had been donated by people visiting the golfing4acure Web site, but Bucci said he is hoping to raise $20,000.

As for when he'll pick up a golf club again, Bucci doesn't have a time table.

"I won't say I don't have any interest in playing, but physically I can't right now," he said.

After 100 rounds of golf in a week, can you blame him?""
