The world No. 3 has accomplished a lot in his career, including claiming the U.S Open back in 2016, but his latest round at the Saudi International will be one to remember. 

The Saudi International has caused a lot of controversy over the last few weeks, due to the current political dilema following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

That hasn't stopped a star-packed field from teeing off at the Royal Greens Golf and Country Club this week and the course is in incredible condition.

Thomas Pieters ended day one as the leader, shooting a seven-under 63, with DJ five shots behind shooting two-under par. Day two was very different for the American, as he flew round the course shooting a flawless nine-under 61.

Not only was this a new course record at Royal Greens, but it was DJ's lowest score in 984 career rounds as a professional. He now leads the Saudi International bust has a host of players breathing down his neck, including Thomas Pieters and his TaylorMade colleague, in-form Haotong Li.
