A one-hole golf match -- with par at 7,173!

Billy Dunk and Ted Ball tee off next April in South Australia and hope to hole out in Western Australia three or four weeks later. Par for the 1,597,550 -yard hole over the Nullarbor Plain, some of Australia's harshest terrain, has been set at 7,173. The two are aiming for the Guinness Book of Records' longest hole.
