Furyk records a 59 at the BMW Championship
« on: September 13, 2013, 09:37:37 PM »
It briefly appeared that Jim Furyk's bid for an incredible round of 59--a score that had been shot only five times previously on the PGA Tour, throughout the years--had been derailed by a bogey on the fifth hole (Furyk's fourteenth hole of the day, since he had started on the back side).

A terrific approach shot on the eighteenth hole, however, setup a birdie for the veteran golfer, giving him a very respectable 31 on the second nine, to go with the scintillating 28 on the first nine--and a 59 total.

Note:  If not for the lone bogey, Furyk might have shot a 58; which would have been the first time in PGA history for such an astoundingly low score.  True, that score has been achieved at the professional level previously, in tournament play--it happened in Japan just over a year ago--but never before on the PGA Tour.

Historic..
Furyk's is the 6th in PGA Tour history.
November 6, 2012, a day in infamy...the death of a republic as we know it.

Annika Sorenstam shot a 59 in LPGA competition, too.

We were watching Furyk's final hole yesterday and cheering greatly. What a great day for him.
Just being unique doesn't make you useful.

Yes, I remember watching that on TV also.

Annika was, for over a decade, the best player on the LPGA Tour.
