    Wow ... nothing posted so far. Are 59s getting too routine now (all five of them in PGA Tour history)?
    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy, who's endured his share of adversity. And only the second of the five 59s in the final round, to win.

    He had to pick this week? When I had Jeff Overton in my fantasy pool? F-tard.

    Shit, what would he have done on the course where the Alabama kid shot 57? Low 50s, 40s?

    I've thought about this while hacking my way around my own local cow pastures, and I suspect that there's probably a limit to how low the pros can go on even an easy course.

    I was about to guess 54, but some Googling reveals that the lowest score ever in an 18-hole round of golf played under reasonably official circumstances on a "regulation" course is 55:

    That course made the Bob Hope courses look like the U.S. Open.

    A 59, 60, 61, 62 and 10(!) 63s shot there. Including a 63 shot by someone who didn't make the cut.

    Still, congrats to Stuart. Good guy.

    Did the players get to stay in the old nuclear bunker at the Greenbrier?

    He never would have shot that at Warwick Hills...

    It was a par-70 course. Does that merit an asterisk?

    Everyone who made the cut finished under par for the tournament except John Daly, who was even par.

    Once Appleby got his timing down for the big windmill on No. 18, it was a piece of cake.
  12. Woody Austin pissed off a few folks when he called it (correctly) a putting contest.
