heyas Ed... I don't see where donsprinter indicated they were all in one day.. I see that he states "54 in a row" ... could be over the course of a few days/weeks?
As to the OP, I see it as someone trying to get a better score in an unlimited play tourney. I know a lot of people tried the USOpen at Bethpage a good number of times in a row.
Have a nice day.
