JIm Furyk 58

Wow we sometimes have a hard time shooting 58 in scrambles at our club! Its amazing that he was able to not get ahead of himself mentally on the course!

CROMWELL, Conn. — Jim Furyk has a place in PGA Tour history all to himself.

Three years after Furyk became the sixth player on tour with a 59, he took it even lower Sunday in the Travelers Championship with a 58.

Furyk bounced in an eagle from 135 yards on the third hole, ran off seven straight birdies around the turn and picked up his final birdie on the 16th hole with a 24-foot putt. He rolled in a short par putt on the final hole at TPC River Highlands, thrust his arms into the air and waved his cap to salute thousands of fans who had rushed to the amphitheater around the green.

Furyk said it felt “phenomenal” to break the record. “There’s a lot of rounds by a lot of great players ahead of me that have never reached 58,” he said, adding, “To have a little, small place in history is something you dream of.”

Furyk is the first player to shoot 58 on the PGA Tour, but Ryo Ishikawa, Shigeki Maruyama and Stephan Jaeger have reached the score in other circumstances. Furyk previously shot a 59 at Conway Farms in the second round of the 2013 BMW Championship with a bogey on his card.

Less than a dozen fans were watching Sunday when Furyk teed off at 8:41 a.m. He started the round 16 shots out of the lead, made his last putt before Golf Channel coverage began and finished three shots behind the winner, Russell Knox.

Furyk reached 11 under on the par-70 course with his seventh straight birdie at No. 12. He missed a 12-foot birdie attempt on the 14th hole, and after he nearly drove the par-4 15th, his 8-foot birdie putt lipped out.

The most pressure Furyk felt was after his final birdie, on No. 16. He still had two par 4s to navigate.

He acknowledged guiding the ball with his drive on No. 17, where he had hit the water earlier in the week. His approach was 40 feet beyond the flag, but he two-putted for par.

His drive on No. 18 hit the right side of the fairway, and his approach left him 29 feet to the right and below the hole. The attempt for birdie felt good, he said, but it slid by on the right about 2 feet past the hole. That is when Furyk knew he had the record.

“No one else can say they’ve done that out here on the PGA Tour,” he said. “It’s really special.”

This Sunday we had the 2-person Scramble.  The format was a Best Ball Stableford Four-Club.

6 points for an Ace, 4 for an eagle, 3 for a birdie, 2 for a par, and one point for a bogie.

Two teams totaled 40 points with the tie being broken by lowest score of 63

1st Placae – Matt Easterman and Dave Lente are this weeks winners!

2nd Place – Darrin Campbell and Wally Buntin came in a close second with 40 points and score of 64

3rd Place – Mark Manning and Carl Sandberg

I forgot to tell everyone that 16 was the closest to the pin.  My apologies to the field.  There were over 20 golfers that came out and everyone finished their round before the rain came.  Cheers and Kudos to everyone that came out.  It is my favorite day of the week – Even when my Team came in LAST place.  Tim Summers and I hit a bad stretch where we traded duffs and shanks for double and triple bogies.

I remember a scramble a few years ago with my golf buddy Mike Summers.  Mike pured his Drive with a slight draw about 270 yards,  I durfed my Drive into the sand.  We were walking through a vast waste bunker and I retrieved my ball.  As we walked up to his superior drive I happened to look back down the fairway.  Upon looking back I noticed that there was only one pair of foot steps in the sand….. I turned to my friend and said ‘Mike, where were you when I needed you? Why were there only one pair of footsteps in the sand?”

He turned to me and said “Tyson, Those footsteps are mine.  That was me carrying YOU”.
