John Reger PGA Golf Report - History Made! Mr. 58 Jim Furyk


History was made by PGA TOUR Veteran Jim Furyk on Sunday August 7th at the Travelers Championship, shooting the first-ever 58 in PGA Tour history. There have been over  613,000 rounds in PGA Tour history and his score is the now the lowest shot ever! 

How do you shoot 58? Simply hit all 18 greens in regulation and have no bogeys and just 24 putts! Jim barely made the cut on Friday, was not playing well, in fact sent his Dad pictures of his swing for advice for the first time ever! 

This goes to show that you never know from day to day what you are going to shoot and how! At age 46, we don't know how much golf is left in Jim, but it appears to be much more! With over $66 million in earnings and 17 PGA TOUR wins including the 2003 U.S. Open, it won't be a surprise for a nomination in a future class for the World Golf Hall of Fame!
