Watch all 59 shots, including a birdie putt on the last, from Brandt Snedeker’s historic round at the 2018 Wyndham Championship.
Snedeker predicted low scores at the Wyndham Championship — but not this low. He shot an 11-under 59 on Thursday, falling one shot shy of matching the PGA TOUR record.
He made a 20-foot putt on his final hole to become the 10th player in TOUR history to break 60. Jim Furyk set the record with a 58 in the final round of the Travelers Championship in 2016.
‘I better be smiling,’ Snedeker said. ‘I don’t do this every day.’
This is the third consecutive year the PGA TOUR has had a sub-60 round. Snedeker is the first to shoot 59 since Adam Hadwin in the third round of the 2017 Careerbuilder Challenge.
It gave him a four-stroke lead after one round. Ryan Moore and John Oda shot 63s, and Martin Flores, DA Points, Brett Stegmaier, David Hearn, Abraham Ancer, Ollie Schniederjans and Jonathan Byrd had 64s.
