Brandt Snedeker broke the magic 60 mark at the Wyndham Championship after shooting an 11-under-par 59 on Thursday. In shooting the new course record at the Sedgefiled Country Club in Greensboro, the 37-year-old became the the 10th man in PGA history to hit a sub-60 round and the first player to do it in 2018.
The eight-time tour winner holds a four-shot lead on the field going into the second round and was naturally delighted with his efforts.
“To know what you’re trying to do and step up and have a 20-footer [on the final hole] and know what it means, I was very aware of what was going on, and to knock that putt in was really special,” Snedeker said.
“To know I’m a part of a small club on tour and not very many people have done this, really cool feeling right now.”
