Re: 59 watch....

OK I'll play seems like a worthy topic.

Jay Haas shot 60 today at the Tradition. 28 on the back. Had a bunker shot on the par 5 18th to shoot 59. Left it 8 ft short Would have been the first 59 on the Senior Tour. There have been 8 60's.

This thread will slow down once play leaves Asia. Easy courses over there imo.

Re: 59 watch....

there was a golf magazine or digest article about guys shooting 62 or better and that a 58 might be around the corner

i think analysis showed that 5 or 6 tourneys accounted for most of it. deere, hope palm springs. maybe greenbrier or memphis. maybe someome can fill in blanks

i wonder what best round on a tough course is. i realize subjective.

Geiberger's 59 without question. 35 years ago and I want to say the next best score of the week was 66.

Never been a 59 on European Tour of course, but Darren Clarke's round of 60 at the K Club was something special.

IIRC (and I was there at the time), he was 12 under after 16 and missed decent birdie chances on 17 and 18.

K Club is certainly no mickey-mouse course.

Re: 59 watch....

A few outstanding US Open rounds...

Arnold Palmer, 1960 Cherry Hills 65 best by 4. Arguably best US Open ever. Hogan could have won, Nicklaus should have won, but it took sports writer Bob Drum with his famous "65 won't do you any good" quip to motivate Palmer to his first (and only) US Open win. Hogan had made the first 34 greens in regulation on Saturday, but spun a short wedge on #17 back into the water, and blew up with a triple on 18. Nicklaus had the lead with 9 holes remaining, but made 3 bogeys and lost by 2.

Ken Venturi, 1964 Congressional 3rd round 66 best by 3. Only 1 other 3rd round in the 60s. Won. Last US Open with final day 36 holes. Anybody think of Venturi when Beljam was struggling last week?

Billy Casper 1966 Olympic 4th round 68 best by 1, but it was his 3rd round in the 60s when the rest of the field only had 12 for the week. Won in playoff. He and Palmer finished 7 shots ahead of the next competitor, Nicklaus.

Jack Nicklaus 1967 Baltusrol 4th round 65 best by 3. 72 hole aggregate score 275 set the US Open record.

Tony Jacklin 1970 Hazeltine, 1st round 71 best by 3. Ended up winning by 7.

Jim Simons (a) 1971 Merion, 3rd round 65 best by 3. Last amateur to lead US Open going into 4th round.

David Graham 1981 Merion, 4th round 67, made all 18 greens in regulation, and with the exception of #1 (missed fairway by about a foot) did not miss a fairway. Likely the most methodically perfect US Open final round ever.

Larry Nelson 1983 Oakmont, 3rd round 65 best by 4. Ended up shooting 36 hole record 132 and won.

Keith Clearwater 1987 Olympic, 3rd round 64 best by 3. (he shot 79 4th round)

Curtis Strange 1989 Oak Hill, 2nd round 64 best by 4. Won.

Tom Lehman 1996 Oakland Hills, 3rd round 65 best by 3. 2nd.

Mark Brooks 2001 Southern Hills, 2nd round 64 best by 4, with round interrupted by thunderstorms.

Tim Clark 2004 Shinnecock 2nd round 66 best by 3. Only 2 other rounds in the 60s.

Rory McIlroy 2011 Congressional 1st round 65 best by 3. 72 hole aggregate score 268 established new record by 4 shots.

Michael Thompson 2012 Olympic 1st round 66 best by 3.

FYI, Johnny Miller's final round 63 at 1973 US Open was 2 shots better than Lanny Wadkins' final round 65.
