Snedeker: 'Really cool feeling' to join exclusive 59 club on PGA Tour

He had been running well before that, making the cut in six straight tournaments, and 14 of his previous 15 events.

"My results, I think, have been a combination of what Brad has laid out for me as well as the hard work I've been putting in", Baddeley says of Malone, who he has worked with for nearly two years. "Obviously I'd like to be in a slightly different position ideally, but still have a good chance", said Conners, who spent last week at home visiting friends and enjoying a rare week off. He remembered a non-tour event he played in China in which he was one putt from that score, but those thoughts "got in the way". "There's a lot of things you have to manage, and golf is one of the first things, from a time standpoint, that gets cut out".

He birdied four holes in a row on his front nine for a 32. He tore it up down the stretch with an 8-under 27 over his last nine holes, with 6 birdies and a 176-yard eagle hole-out at the par-4 6th.

Shooting 58 also was a possibility.

Scores are routinely low at the Donald Ross-designed course, with 2017 victor Henrik Stenson setting a tournament record with a 22-under 258 a year after Si Woo Kim tied the previous mark with a 259, so the chance is there for players to move up the standings.

It was the US PGA's first 59 since Canada's Adam Hadwin at last year's Careerbuilder Challenge.

While some supported Imran Khan and slammed Noah, others said he is a comedian hence his comments should not be taken seriously. Rival candidate, Shehbaz Sharif, of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PMLN), garnered 96 votes.

The Wyndham Championship is the final event before the FedExCup Playoffs start next week.

He was right, but even he could never have predicted how low he would go.

"This year has been one of the better ball-striking years I've ever had; I just haven't rewarded it with good putting". "I don't do this every day". Arjun Atwal had a 61 in 2010.

It's been a somewhat frustrating, turbulent year for Snedeker.

With his exempt status running out this week, Baddeley is likely to need a top-10 finish or better at the regular season-ending Wyndham event in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Moore has four top-10 finishes this season, including a fifth-place showing at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. "As much as I tried to positive self-talk myself into playing good, I didn't see 59 coming today, to be honest with you".
