Traveling golfer makes a stop in the Stateline

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- He takes his game wherever there is a course he has not played, and for one Chicago man, it's led him to the Stateline.

"Pretty much played everything in Chicago, so I got to venture out a little bit further."

Mark Woyna works and lives in Chicago, but he plays golf just about anywhere there's available tee times.

"For somebody with a day job, I play about 105 rounds a year. It's all because you play two-a-day, six to eight rounds on these trips."

That number equates to two rounds, every week, 52 weeks out of the year. Saturday, Woyna did the Winnebago County double, Ledges Golf Course in the morning, Atwood Homestead Golf Course in the afternoon.

"You know, you hate it and you love it. It's the worst game ever invented and then you birdie 18 and then you can't wait to get out there tomorrow."

Atwood Homestead is his 462nd different course he's played.

"I play about 100 courses every year and a half. So, it's kind of like a collecting thing. You try playing courses you've never played before."

And on a weekend afternoon where temperatures are in the 90s, Woyna says he doesn't mind a little bit of sweat.

"I've walked in 105 degree heat. So, you just stay hydrated, wear loose clothing and try to find as much shade as you can."
