Jim Furyk shoots 58 at the Travelers Championship; 2nd sub-60 round in PGA Tour career

For the second time in his career, Jim Furyk shot a sub-60 round on the PGA Tour, shooting the first ever 58 in PGA Tour history in the final round of the 2016 Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.

Furyk got off to a hot start on the par-70 course, going out in 8-under 27, including a hole-out eagle from the fairway on the par-4 third hole from 135 yards. He finished out the front side with four consecutive birdies, extending that streak to seven in a row on the first three holes of the back nine. Then after three consecutive pars, Furyk made a 23-foot birdie at the par-3 16th hole.



This 58 follows Furyk's 59 in the 2013 BMW Championship. Furyk didn't go on to win that tournament at Conway Farms near Chicago. Zach Johnson hoisted the trophy that week. Furyk, however, is the first player in PGA Tour history to record multiple official rounds below 60.

Furyk's round follows Stephan Jaeger becoming the first player to shoot 58 in an official PGA Tour event on the Web.com Tour at last week's Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae in California.
