What is the PGA Tour’s 72-hole scoring record for every tournament?

On the PGA Tour, every tournament (outside of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play) has its own record book, featuring its own 18-, 36-, 54- and 72-hole records. Outside of the majors, most golfers don't have an earthly clue of the PGA Tour tournament scoring records. However, several times each year, a player threatens to beat the 72-hole scoring record of an event.

It's helpful to know the 72-hole scoring record for every PGA Tour event, but the overall PGA Tour 72-hole scoring record is 253, shot by Justin Thomas in winning the 2017 Sony Open in Hawaii. That's the PGA Tour 72-hole scoring record by three shots, besting the 256 shot by Mark Calcavecchia to win the 2001 Waste Management Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale.

The PGA Tour's 72-hole scoring record against par is 34-under total, shot by Cameron Smith in winning the 2022 Sentry Tournament of Champions on Kapalua Resort's Plantation Course in Hawaii.

Only 8 tournaments on the current PGA Tour schedule have 72-hole scoring records that aren't at least 20-under-par total.
