Every once in a while, a golfer can catch fire on the golf course. They're playing perfect golf from tee to green, and everything they look at goes in the hole. It doesn't last forever, but there have been some consecutive birdie streaks that have lasted half of a round.
The world record for the most consecutive birdies in a single round of golf is nine. The record is the same for all the major golf tours of the world, men or women, including the PGA Tour, European Tour, Web.com Tour, LPGA Tour, Ladies European Tour and more.
Who has made the most consecutive birdies in a round of golf?
Omar Uresti was the first player to accomplish the feat, doing so in the third round of the 1994 Shreveport Open on the Web.com Tour.
Beth Daniel was second, making nine in a row in the second round of the 1999 Phillips Invitational in Austin, Texas.
Mark Calcavecchia, first accomplished the feat on the PGA Tour in the second round of the 2009 RBC Canadian Open.
Amy Yang had nine straight birdies in the final round of the 2015 LPGA KEB Hana Bank Championship.
On the European Tour, Colin Montgomerie had nine in a row in the 2005 Indonesian Open. Austrian Bernd Weisberger had nine straight birdies in the 2017 Maybank Championship, but the record is unofficial on the European Tour because the round was played with preferred lies. Rayhan Thomas did so in 2017 Dubai Creek Open.
On the Ladies European Tour, Bronte Law made nine straight birdies while winning the Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in December 2018.
Then James Nitties joined the party with nine straight birdies in the first round of the 2019 ISPS Handa Vic Open.
