Bo Van Pelt Fires 59...

Yes it was the Waste Management Open pro-am, but a 59 is a 59.

From the PGATour.com Tour Report.

Any word about the Pro Member at Wisper Rock? That sounds like a fun event.

Geoff - IMHO (or in IMHO - humble??) - I'm sorry, no - a 59 definitely is not a 59 in today's golf, thanks to the USGA. It is a good score but it is not a 59.

oh really Jim, when was your last 59?
01.31.2013 | Unregistered CommenterJosh
If you shoot 59 from the ladies's tees- you still did it, you had the pressure of finishing the round with that legendary number staring at you.

I had a college buddy that shot 58, memorialized it with a custom license plate!

Bo just keeps popping up all over the place these days, I think he could be an unexpected major winner this year or next.

GO BO!

Phil shot a 60 today. So that was close.

Josh - the last time I played. I hit it on about the 12th or 13th hole. But that was after I used the deer spray. Ha - and yes it is a great score but not as unusual as it once was.

Nice comback round for BVP in the pro am round after his final round 81 at Torrey Pines. 81 to 59 in 2+ days. These guys are good!
