Standing on the 18th tee Sunday, Justin Rose had a round to remember going. Two swings later it turned into a round to forget.

The 10-time winner on the PGA Tour made three eagles, seven birdies, five pars and two bogeys to get to 11 under through 17 holes during the final round of the RBC Canadian Open at St. George’s Golf & Country Club in Toronto.

Officially on 59—or even 58—watch, Rose was looking to become the 13th player to sign for a sub-60 round in Tour history, and the first since current world No. 1 Scottie Scheffler shot a 12-under 59 in the second round of the 2020 Northern Trust. That is until Rose airmailed his approach to the 18th green.

He got relief from the grandstands and chipped from the thick rough behind the green to leave an 18-footer for par and a piece of history. Instead, he two-putted for bogey and the most-disappointing 10-under 60 in golf history (which set a course record, an RBC Canadian Open record and a personal best).

RBC Canadian: Leaderboard

The lowest score in relation to par in Tour history is 13 under, achieved four times, most recently in 2017 by Adam Hadwin at the CareerBuilder Challenge. Jim Furyk is the lone player to ever shoot two sub-60 rounds, and is the only player to ever shoot a 58, doing so at the 2016 Travelers Championship.
