Adam Hadwin shoots the second 59 of the PGA Tour season
PGA Tour players are torching courses to start the 2017 season. Justin Thomas became the seventh man to card a 59 in PGA Tour history a few weeks ago, en route to back-to-back wins at Kapalua and Waialae with a cumulative score of 49-under par.
The PGA Tour is back in the contiguous United States for the CareerBuilder Challenge in California this week, where 29-year-old Canadian Adam Hadwin vaulted into the lead with a spectacular 13-under par round of 59 at La Quinta Country Club.
Hadwin began his day with a par, but ripped off six consecutive birdies and made the turn at 7-under.
Hadwin remained bogey-free throughout, finishing with 13 birdies to join a very, very exclusive club.
It was very nearly the third 59 of the year already. Chez Reavie settled for a 61 last week in Hawaii.
