59


A piece of golf history.

[Paul Goydos] shot a 59. An 18-hole, 12-under-par, 59. It was only the
fourth score of that total n PGA Tour history, tying the mark of Al Geiberger, Chip Beck and David Duval.

“That’s just a mythical number in our game,” Goydos said.

It was the kind of performance that had a few other Tour pros watching with the fans as Goydos arrived at the 18th green with a 7-footer left for a birdie and the 59.

“I was probably as nervous as I’ve been over a putt in my life,” Goydos said. But he rolled the downhill putt perfectly, saying “the ball couldn’t have gone more in the center of the hole with a laser on it.”
