TWO kind-hearted teenagers took their love of golf to the extreme as they completed up to 180 holes of golf for charity after one of their dads was struck by cancer.

Keen golfers Nathan Beresforde, 18, of Barnburgh, and 17-year-old Sprotbrough pal Aidan Willis attempted 10 rounds at Hickleton Golf Club in just 18 hours.

The charity drive was to raise money for Sheffield’s Weston Park Hospital where Nathan’s 48-year-old golfing dad Gary had been receiving treatment for cancer of the oesophagus.

The golfing pals, who have been members of the Hickleton club since youngsters, have raised over £5,500 so far, and more cash is coming in.

Nathan, who completed over 140 holes, said afterwards: “The event went really well, it was really good.I was in agony after, I managed eight rounds of golf but had to stop because my knee was in pain and Aidan did 10 rounds.We received another £500 on the day and up to that point had raised over £5,000. We’re just so pleased with the support.” People can still help donate at http://www.justgiving.com/Nathan-Beresforde
