That happened at the John Deere Classic, where Goydos went out in 31, and then made eight birdies and one par on his back nine — including three straight birdies to close — to be the fourth person to shoot a 59 in a PGA Tour event, and the first to do it on a course that wasn't a par 72.
Maybe the most impressive thing about his 12-under round was how many putts he had to make from distance. Six of his birdies were outside of 12 feet, including a bomb from nearly 40 feet on the par-4 11th.
After the round, Goydos said his birdie putt on the 18th was the most nervous he's ever been in his life, short of becoming a father.
For one of the most well liked and respected golfers on tour, this has to be a dream come true.
