PGA Tour’s bubble players take center stage at Wyndham

Brandt Snedeker shoots a 59 in the opening round of the Wyndham Championship

After an eagle on his the par-4 15, Snedeker needed just two birdies in his final three holes to become the ninth member of the 59 club and card the tenth sub-60 round on the PGA Tour. Harvick has partnered with the folks at the Sedgefield Country Club for almost 10 years. but he admits his golf game takes more than a backseat to his full-time job.

Snedeker then ripped up the front nine in just 27 blows, with six birdies and a spectacular hole-out from 176 yards for eagle at the sixth, cementing his place in the record books with a flawless 20-foot putt on the ninth green.

A five-iron to two feet at the par-three seventh left Snedeker needing one more birdie for 59.

They join 2017 Masters champion and 2012 Wyndham winner Sergio Garcia, defending champion and 2013 FedExCup champion Henrik Stenson, 2018 Players and 2011 Wyndham winner Webb Simpson, 2007 Wyndham winner and 2012 FedExCup champion Brandt Snedeker, and current U.S. Ryder Cup Team Captain Jim Furyk in the field.

The 37-year-old American offered a reminder of the fickle nature of the game when he recorded the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history.

The controversial video that's landed Mo Salah in hot water
The Reds began their campaign in the 2018/19 Premier League season with an emphatic win in front of their faithfuls. Sky Sports cameras captured the young boy as he made a beeline for Salah, who he immediately pulled in for a hug.

Stenson rallied Sunday to separate himself from a four-man pack for his first victory since the 2016 Open Championship. "I don't know how you wouldn't", Snedeker said of his mindset during the round.

It was the US PGA's first 59 since Canada's Adam Hadwin at last year's Careerbuilder Challenge.

"To step up there and have a 20-footer and know what it means; I'm very aware of what was going on", Snedeker said.

Snedeker finished that side of the course with four birdies for the 32, and then he made six birdies and an eagle on the other side for a 27. "I knocked that putt in".

"This year has been one of the better ball-striking years I've ever had; I just haven't rewarded it with good putting. There's a lot of things you have to manage, and golf is one of the first things, from a time standpoint, that gets cut out". His lack of distance is less of a factor at Sedgefield, and he's solid once he gets it close (10th in SG: Around-the-Green).
