Imagine the hot sun blaring down while being surrounded by thousands of teenagers with mo-hawks, throw in some loud music and you've got The Warped Tour 2006.

The bands that appealed to the young at heart were Joan Jett and The Buzzcocks. The Buzzcocks are actually Kevin Lyman's (the creator of The Warped Tour) favorite band.

The two Detroit Lakes youth golfers will be partaking in a unique challenge Tuesday when they play 24 straight hours of golf at the Ironman Golf Course, to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of DL. It's somewhat ironic that the two golfers' stage is Ironman Golf Course, because it will take some iron will to make it through that many hours -- and holes -- of golf. "The challenge will be to not get tired," said Smith, who is 10-years old and is the son of Ironman Golf Course owner and Golf Pro Kris Smith.
