JIM Furyk has recorded the lowest round in US PGA Tour history with a magical 58 the highlight of the Travelers Championship.
Furyk shot the lowest single-round score in the tour’s history with an 12-under par round that was kickstarted by a front-nine 27. Furyk, who became the sixth player to shoot 59 in US PGA Tour history at the 2013 BMW Championship, used the same set of Callaway RAZR X Forged irons to tie the single-round record at Conway Farms Golf Club, and make history this morning at TPC River Highlands.
Though Scotland’s Russell Knox won the tournament with a 14-under par total, it is Furyk who stole the show after starting the final round 1-over par.
In an amazing performance where he hit all 18 greens, made 10 birdies and an eagle (and zero bogeys), Furyk put his name into the record books.
Here’s a look at some of the key clubs that Mr.58 used to make history:
Ball: Callaway Chrome Soft
Driver: Callaway Great Big Bertha (Oban Tour Limited 75 shaft), 9 degrees
3-wood: Callaway Big Bertha Alpha 816 (Fujikura 8.2x shaft), 14 degrees
Hybrid: Callaway X2 Hot Pro (UST VTS 100 HS Stiff shaft), 20 degrees
Irons: Callaway RAZR X Forged (4-PW; KBS Tour 115R shafts)
Wedges: Callaway Mack Daddy 2 (50S degrees; True Temper DG S400 shaft), Titleist Vokey Design SM4 (56 degrees; True Temper DG S400 shaft), Callaway Mack Daddy 2 (60 degrees; True Temper DG S400 shaft)
Putter: Odyssey Versa #1W (White/Black/White)
A look at Furyk’s scorecard reveals the veteran was 11-under through his first 12 holes.
He’s been playing a Chrome Soft Golf Ball this year, and remarked that likes the spin and control that it gives him off of his short irons and wedges, and around the greens.
His driver is set to a Neutral directional bias and Standard loft adjustability. And the adjustable perimeter weighting is set close to the Neutral setting. Callaway Tour Reps have said that he really likes the look, and his start lines on his shots are very good. He first put the driver in play last year.
Approximately 1.5 million rounds in PGA Tour history and Jim Furyk just shot the first 58 ever.
