Another day, another 59 on Tour... this time from Drew Nesbitt


Just 24 hours after Oliver Fisher became the first player in European Tour history to post a round of 59, Canada's Drew Nesbitt has followed suit by posting the magic number at the PGA Tour Latinoamerica's Brazil Open.



Nesbitt's round included a bogey, eight pars, five birdies, and four eagles - three of which came on one nine and one of which was an ace at the par-3 second, his 11th hole of the day.

The Canadian closed with three straight birdies, including this one at the ninth, to record the first 59 in the tour's history.


Incredibly, Nesbitt shot a first-round 79, so he bettered his opening effort by 20 strokes! 

"I knew I had to shoot a low round if I was going to make the cut," he said. "The first hole of the day, I happened to knock it in from 100 yards and get my day started pretty quickly. ...

"My goal, obviously, was just to make the cut. To do it shooting 59 was absolutely incredible. You can't really ask for anything more than that."
