HE MAY NOT win the Travelers Championship, but Jim Furyk will certainly be the one hitting the headlines in the morning after he carded the lowest score in PGA history at TPC River Highlands today.

At the start of the day, the 46-year old was 16 shots behind the overnight leader Daniel Berger, but a round including 10 birdies and one eagle saw Furyk surge up the leaderboard.

The former major winner is currently in fifth place on 11 under par, just 4 shots behind Daniel Berger who has yet to begin his final round.

This isn’t the first time the American has flirted with breaking such a record as he already shot a 59 at the BMW Championship in 2013.

After settling for a par on the first hole, Furyk continued to card nine birdies and one eagle over the next 11 holes.

A 23-foot birdie putt was holed on the 16th hole opened up the possibility of a new record. All Furyk had to do was card a par on the final two holes, which he did successfully etching his name into the history books.
