Zach Johnson shoots 67 still 8 shots behind historic 59 at Deere Classic

Posted:

(SILVIS, ILLINOIS)(KWWL) Paul Goydos has become only the fourth player to shoot a 59 at a PGA Tour event. Goydos shot the record score in the first round of the John Deere Classic

Defending champion Steve Stricker shot a 60, making for the two lowest scores ever in a single round at a PGA event. And he just missed tying Goydos on the last hole.

Goydos had 12 birdies and six pars Thursday during the opening round of the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Ill. Eight of the birdies came on the final nine holes of the par-71, 7,257-yard TPC Deere Run course.

The PGA says the last player to shoot 59 was David Duval in the final round of the 1999 Bob Hope Classic. Al Geiberger in 1977 and Chip Beck in 1991 have also pulled off the feat.
