Golfer Jim Furyk makes PGA history with score of 58

American golfer Jim Furyk made PGA history on August 7th by shooting a round of 58 at the Travelers Championship in Connecticut. The 46-year-old had an eagle and 10 birdies on the 70-par round to finish it at 12 under. However, even though he managed a record-setting round in the tournament, Furyk didn’t win it as he finished in fifth place, three strokes behind Scotland’s Russell Knox. Furyk also went into the event as one of just six male golfers to previously score under-60 on an 18-hole round. All previous players had scored a 59 once in their careers. Furyk managed to shoot a round of 59 at the BMW Championship back in 2013.

Henrik Stenson wins 2016 British Open in record fashion

Sweden’s Henrik Stenson won the 145th British Open at Royal Troon in Ayrshire, Scotland in record fashion on Sunday, July 17th. It was Stenson’s first major victory and the first ever for a Swedish male golfer. The 40-year-old finished the 72-hole, four-round event at 20 under par, which tied Jason Day lowest under-par score ever in a major tournament. Day set the mark at last year’s PGA Championship. However, Stenson didn’t really have much choice since American Phil Mickelson was right on his tail as he finished in the runner up position for the 11th time in a major. It was Stenson who hung on to take home the claret jug though with his final shot being an excellent 20-foot birdie shot at the 18th hole.

American golfer Dustin Johnson captures U.S. Open

American golfer Dustin Johnson won the U.S. Open at Oakmont on June 19th for his first ever major win after finishing as last year’s runner up. However, he had to go through the last seven holes wondering if he’d be penalized a stroke for a possible infringement on the fifth hole. Johnson finished the fourth and final round by shooting 68 to finish the tournament at five under par, but was penalized for moving his ball back on the fifth green. Therefore, his official score ended up being four under par for the event, but it was still enough to win it as he finished three in front of Shane Lowry of Ireland and fellow Americans Scott Piercy and Jim Furyk.
