Kevin Sutherland fires Champions Tour's first 59
The 50-year-old had a chance for a 58, but he bogeyed the 18th hole.
Kevin Sutherland had quite a round of golf Saturday, and it could have been even better.
The 50-year-old Sutherland shot the Champions Tour's first ever 59, and he had a great chance for a 58 but bogeyed the finishing hole. Sutherland is in at 14-under after two rounds at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open in Endicott, NY.
After starting 9-under after just the first eight holes -- an insane stretch of seven birdies and an eagle -- Sutherland parred the 9th before birdies at 10 and 11, reaching 11-under after 11 holes. He leveled out a bit, parring the par-5 12th, before rolling in birdies at the 15th, 16th, and 17th. He went to the finishing hole at 14-under par, but missed the six-foot par for a 58.
No player has ever shot below 59 at a PGA Tour sanctioned event. Six players have shot 59 on tour, most recently Jim Furyk at last year's BMW Championship
