Brandt Snedeker shoots 59 after bogeying his first hole at the 2018 Wyndham Championship

Published

on

Brandt Snedker started his first round of the 2018 Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club on the 10th hole with a drive way left off the tee, leading to a bogey. He didn’t make his first birdie until his fourth hole, actually, but from there, the flood gates were open. Snedeker birdied four holes in a row — hole nos. 13, 14, 15 and 16 — to go out in 32 (3 under).

He then SCORCHED his back nine, shooting an 8-under 27 including 6 birdies and an eagle. Certainly knowing it was for 59, Snedeker rolled in a 20-footer on his 18th hole (the course’s 9th hole). Watch the putt below.

It was by far the longest birdie putt he made on the back nine, probably because he was sticking everything to within 5 feet.

Notice the “0 feet” putt above? Yea, because he didn’t have to putt after dunking his second shot.

Where does Snedeker’s 59 stand in terms of the history books? He’s the 9th player ever to shoot 59 on the PGA Tour, and the FIRST to do so starting the round with a bogey.

Remember, even if you start with a bogey you can shoot your best round ever. Maybe not a 59 like Snedeker on Thursday of the Wyndham Championship, but don’t let that first-hole bogey get you down; there’s 17 more opportunities to make birdie — and Snedeker nearly did just that.

    He also destroyed the hole when he dunked it on 7. They had to cut a new hole he wrecked it so bad. I’d never seen that happen before.

GolfWRX was live this week from the Genesis Invitational at Riviera Country Club in Pacific Palisades, California. If you missed any of the photos from this week, make sure to catch up on them below, where we have seven general galleries from Hogan’s Alley, a number of WITB looks, and even a thread filled with photos of a certain 15-time major champions.

Piretti Putter Kobe Bryant tribute covers

FYI: Two numbers? Kobe wore No. 24 in high school and switched to 33. But when drafted by the Hornets and traded to the Lakers in 1996, 33 was already retired by the team in tribute to Hall of Famer Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Bryant then chose 8, the number he wore as a youth in Italy, which also coincided with the sum of “143,” the number Bryant wore at Adidas ABCD Camp in high school. Bryant also wore 24 in the NBA from the 2006-2007 season onward, explaining, “24 is a growth. Physical attributes aren’t there the way they used to be, but the maturity level is greater. Marriage, kids. Start having a broader perspective being one of the older guys on the team now, as opposed to being the youngest.”

Jason Dufner’s custom Scotty Cameron

Looks like a custom Timeless Cameron with a smooth face (no milling), which is not available in retail. Tiger Woods WITB has the same smooth face on his gamer. Here’s a link to Duf’s putter pics

Sergio’s WITB is off the hook

The Spaniard is gaming the new TaylorMade SIM Driver and fairway woods, some Ping Blueprint silverware, and a Ping PLD putter.

“It seems most of the Ping staffers who play the PLD putters have either completely flat faces or the plain horizontal milled lines on the face. I’m not really sure why they seem to prefer this, but I suspect it’s because they don’t really need the “forgiveness” of the TR grooves. They also may not like that the putter sounds slightly different when hit on the deeper grooves compared to the thinner spots.” -nova6868 from the forums.

Dustin Johnson’s WITB showed us his TaylorMade 64* Hi-Toe wedge
