PGA Tour Record Set in Connecticut's Travelers Championship

Posted August 08, 2016

Jim Furyk has become the first player in PGA Tour history to shoot a round of 58 at the Travelers Championship in CT.

"(What) I'm proud of is my still be out here and have a little life, win past year, days like this, that's why it's keeping me around and playing well".

While it didn't play out the way he always envisioned it would, Geiberger was hardly surprised that someone finally shot 58 in the tour event.

He said: "I am now starting to think about this and I am at the same time realising that it is the first medal. The International Judo Federation (IJF) had been outspoken in backing Russian athletes' right to compete.

"There's a lot of rounds by a lot of great players ahead of me that have never reached 58", said the 46-year-old afterwards.

Furyk, incidentally, was one of six players to share the previous record of 59. "To have a little small piece of history is something you dream of". Just like his 59 in 2013, Furyk's sub-60 round will be in a non-winning effort.

Furyk had seven pars in his round, one eagle and 10 birdies. He also birdied the par-3, 16th hole with a 23-foot putt, then made par on the final two holes to secure his place in PGA Tour history.

I don't throw babies out. Believe me, I love babies
He continued: "This was a attractive baby and a attractive mother". "They wouldn't be getting 400, I'll tell you right now". Donald Trump is complaining that the media has spun a fable that he kicked a baby out of his rally in Ashburn, Va.

Furyk had previously held the joint-record with a 12-under par round of 59, earned at the BMW Championship in IL three years ago. "I go over it three or four times, and then I usually peak my head out and ask them again if it's signed and they've already checked it three times so I did the same thing".

"That's a putt I'll remember forever", he said.

He was 1-over entering Sunday and wrapped up the Travelers Championship at 11-under 269. Just a week before Furyk's first-ever PGA Tour 58, the Tour had its first 58.

His staff is reportedly despondent, and the GOP establishment is reeling. "I'm just not there yet", Trump said in the interview. First, nothing like that has ever happened before (though neither has a candidate like Trump ever been a party nominee before).

Daniel Berger led the tournament going into the last day but his four-over 74 saw him drop out of contention, with four straight bogeys on the start of his back nine ruining his title chances.
