Jim Furyk set a PGA Tour record by shooting a 58 on Sunday at the Travelers Championship, a feat that elicited awe and admiration from around the world of golf. On the eve of the sport’s return to the Summer Olympics, it was Furyk’s performance at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn., that made history.
At age 46, Furyk made 10 birdies, one eagle and no bogeys to become the first player ever to shoot lower than a 59 at a PGA Tour event. He was previously one of only six players to shoot a round of 59, which he did in the second round of the 2013 BMW Championship.
