Tiger Woods Birdies Last Two Holes To Tie PGA Tour Record For Lowest Ever Round With 59 (Never Mind, He Didn’t)
Don’t count Tiger Woods out yet, ladies and gents. The golf legend shot the best round of his career today and one of the best rounds of all time, tying the PGA Tour record for lowest 18-hole round with a 59 at Bridgestone. He’ll share the record with Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, David Duval, Paul Goydos, and Stuart Appleby. Woods is now -15 through the first two rounds of the tournament, giving him a huge lead heading into the weekend. Tiger has had some pretty amazing rounds in his 78 career tournament wins over his 17 years as a professional golfer, but none was better than the 59 he posted this afternoon.
Oh wait, never mind. Twitter might have jumped the gun on this one, which is really shocking since they’ve definitely never done that before. Tiger actually finished with a 61 after parring the last two holes, two strokes shy of the record.
He missed a pretty short birdie putt on 17 and then hit his tee shot on 18 into the woods. His next shot hit a tree and fell into some dirt by the green. After a drop, Tiger’s third shot rolled past the hole and onto the edge of the green. He hit a long par putt to finish at 61 (13 under par) with a seven-stroke lead heading into the weekend.
