Harrison Frazar makes a superb 59 in the fourth round of PGA Qualifying tournament

(This entry was originally posted in this blog on December 7, 2008 and the information is based on that time.)

In men’s PGA TOUR Qualifying Tournament, Harrison Frazar took the lead in Round 4 with 13 under par. Seems unbelievable but believe it. The University of Texas alum played seven straight birdies on his back-nine. On December 6, 2008, at the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course, Frazar made some great putters. He shot a 35-foot putt on the 17th hole and made his seventh consecutive birdie. He made par on the 18th hole. In his last shot, he made a splendid 20 foot birdie putt. Frazar said:

“If somebody says they don’t know how low they are under par, they’re lying,…..Your heart rate gets up a little bit. It gets a little bit tougher to get a little spit. But I hit my routine, I made good swings, I was thinking well and I feel like the swings I made on the last couple of holes were some of the best swings I’ve made all week. So that’s probably what I’m most proud of.”

In the entire round, Harrison shot 11 birdies and one Eagle. Unfortunately, the qualifying tournament is not considered official tournament. Hence, the record was not considered official.

It was the only second 59 shot made in a qualifying tournament. The first was made by David Gossett at the Nicklaus Private Course in 2000. Like this one, that round was not included in the official record and Gossett could not participate in the PGA tour as he could not go below 70 in the other rounds. Frazar is now leading the board with a total of 264. He has two more rounds to go. If everything goes well, then he will earn the PGA Tour cards on Monday.
