Jim Furyk makes history, shoots 58 at Travelers Championship


The 2016 golf season may be coming to an end after the final major tournament of the year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t see history made end in the closing weeks. Jim Furyk did just that on Sunday at the Travelers Championship.

Furyk last won a tournament with a win in the RBC Heritage last season. He won’t win the Travelers Championship after finishing four strokes behind leader Daniel Berger, but he will sign his name in the history books for the rest of his career as he shot a PGA Tour record 58 in the fourth round of the championship on Sunday.

The 46-year-old veteran Furyk has been playing on the pro tour since 1992 and his best total score came in a -29 win at the 1999 Las Vegas Invitational. This won’t grant him a trophy, but it will certainly give him a memory he will never forget.
