PGA Tour Golfer Makes History with Sub-60 Round at Travelers Championship

CROMWELL, CT – Golfer Cameron Young achieved a remarkable feat at the Travelers Championship, making history by shooting an impressive 11-under 59 on Saturday. This remarkable score marked the first sub-60 round on the PGA Tour in almost four years, showcasing Young’s exceptional skill on the course.

During his exceptional round, Young managed to make two eagles on par 4s, with a highlight being holing out with a wedge from 142 yards on the third hole. His strong performance continued as he drove the 280-yard 15th hole to within 4 feet, reinforcing his dominance throughout the tournament.

This achievement places Young in an elite group of golfers who have achieved sub-60 rounds since Al Geiberger first accomplished the feat in 1977. Interestingly, despite Young’s incredible performance, he did not break the course record at TPC River Highlands, held by Jim Furyk who shot a 58 in 2016 at the same event.

The soggy course conditions allowed Young to lift, clean, and place his golf ball in the short grass, giving him an advantage during his record-breaking round. Despite his outstanding performance, Young missed a birdie opportunity on the 16th hole, falling just short of tying Furyk’s record.

Despite narrowly missing out on tying the PGA Tour record, Young’s accomplishment adds to the notable sub-60 rounds seen across tours worldwide this year. From Joaquín Niemann’s 59 in the LIV Golf League to Cristobal del Solar’s record-tying 57 on the Korn Ferry Tour, golf fans have witnessed extraordinary performances across the globe.

Young’s impressive round serves as a testament to his skill and determination on the course, solidifying his status as a rising star in the world of golf. As the Travelers Championship continues, golf enthusiasts eagerly anticipate more thrilling moments as players strive for excellence on the green.
