CROMWELL, Conn. – Jim Furyk set a PGA Tour record Sunday, shooting a 58 during the final round of the Travelers Championship.

The 46-year-old American got it going early, making his first birdie on his second hole at the TPC River Highlands course, then holing out for an eagle from 135 yards on the par-4 third hole. He finished his first nine holes in a course-record 27 shots.

Furyk, a member of Team RBC, shot 31 on the back nine, finishing with a 2-foot par on the final hole. The final birdie of his bogey-free round came on the par-3 16th, when he sunk a putt from just under 24 feet from the right of the hole.

Furyk, who has 17 PGA Tour victories – including two of the RBC Canadian Open – was already one of six golfers to shoot a 59 in his career. He did that during the second round of the BMW Championship in 2013.
