Jim Furyk shoots a record 58 at the Travelers Championship

The magic number in golf for decades has been the elusive score of 59. Already a member of the “59 club” after shooting the magic number in 2013, Jim Furyk out-does himself in the final round of the 2016 Travelers Championship.

jim Furyk shoots 58, makes PGA TOUR history

Sitting 135 yards from the hole on the third, Furyk rattled the flag and heard it "smack the pin" and disappear. Because the pin was in the shade, Furyk had no idea it went in the cup for eagle until a group of fans started cheering.
