BigMike said:I wonder where this ranks among the 59's It's not a brutally difficult course, but at the same time, this is the playoffs, and it seems like the course was playing pretty fair to par today. He was I think more than 12 stroked below course average today
I don't know enough about the other 59s in history to know where this one ranks, but Notah Begay, one of the on the course reporters, said he mentioned how Furyk was playing (-11 through 16 at that point) to Tiger and Tiger's response was "is he playing the same course as the rest of us?" Says a lot, I think.
Six strokes better than the next lowest score. Made up 9 strokes on the leader and moved up 38 places.
