Greg Newport broke the all-time record of Putt-Putt minigolf competitions of 8 rounds,
as he won the PPA Eastern Open 2011 with score 185 (average 23.13).
A lower score than this has actually been played once in Putt-Putt
history, as Cliff Matthews scored 8 consecutive rounds 182 (average 22.75) in the first 8 rounds
of a tournament that consisted 12 rounds.
The score 185 played now by Greg Newport is the tied second
best row of 8 consecutive rounds in PPA history, and the best score of all time in a competition
that includes 8 rounds exactly.
Putt-Putt minigolf courses have a felt surface and steel walls,
and the game is played with a golf ball and golf putter.
