<p>Boyle and his brother Darren took part in the fundraiser from Wednesday 28th to Friday 30th May at the Kingsfield Golf Centre in Linlithgow, West Lothian. </p>
<p>The Longest Day Golf Challenge is Macmillan’s most difficult golfing event which involves teams tackling 72 holes, 300 shots and a 20 mile walk. Last year 850 teams took part and raised a staggering £780,000 for the charity. </p>
<p>However the Boyle brothers decided to go even further and challenged themselves to play 72 holes a day for three consecutive days – 900 shots and 68 miles over the 72 hour period. </p>
<p>Nick Boyle said: “My brother and I have both experienced family members and friends with cancer. We felt it was important to set ourselves a tough task which is why we extended it over the three days. My highlight has to be completing the challenge with a birdie over three feet to an audience of twenty or so – a fantastic finish.”</p>
<p>Macmillan Cancer Support is the chosen <a href=charity partner for Jewson and the rest of the Saint Gobain Building Distribution division.
