Oliver Fisher Shoots European Tour's First Ever 59

Oliver Fisher has become the first golfer to shoot 59 on the European Tour.

The Englishman made 10 birdies and an eagle on route to a 12 under par total in round two of the Portugal Masters on the par-71 Dom Pedro Victoria course in Vilamoura.

Fisher began the day at level par after an opening 71 but was out in seven under par thanks to five birdies and an eagle on his opening nine.

Watch: Fisher's clutch par save on 16 kept the dream alive, he would birdie the par-5 next

The 30-year-old then began his back nine birdie-birdie-birdie to reach 10 under after 12 holes and further birdies at the 15th and 17th meant he needed to par the last for 59.

A beautiful drive, iron shot to 30 feet and two putts secured history - and his putt for 58 came very, very close!

England's Oliver Fisher celebrates after shooting a round of 59 in Vilamoura

Oliver Fisher has carded the first round of 59 in European Tour history on day two of the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura.

The Englishman made 10 birdies and an eagle in his bogey-free 12-under-par effort to at last break the barrier, with 18 players having previously recorded official rounds of 60.

There have been 10 sub-60 rounds recorded on the PGA Tour, with Jim Furyk registering both a 58 and a 59. The most recent one came from Brandt Snedeker at last month's Wyndham Championship.

Fisher started with three birdies and then eagled the par-five fifth before adding further gains on the sixth and eighth to turn in 28.

He birdied the 10th and 11th and when he got on the green at the par-five 12th in two and made a third birdie in a row, he was 10 under for the day.

The 30-year-old got up and down from the side of the driveable par-four 15th for another birdie but needed to hole a 20-footer to save par at the par-three next after leaving his tee shot a long way from the hole.

He got on the par-five 17th in two and another birdie meant a routine par up the last sealed his place in the history books.

"It feels great," Fisher told Sky Sports Golf . "I started off the round great with three straight birdies and then kept it going. I saw that you guys were out here and it was in the back of my mind all day.

"I'm just pleased that I two-putted there from 40 feet on the last.

Oliver Fisher shoots first 59 in European Tour history

English golfer made an eagle and 10 birdies on a par-71 course.

Social Sharing

After 46 years, the European Tour finally has its first round of 59.

English golfer Oliver Fisher was sprayed with champagne beside the 18th green after two-putting for par from 40 feet to complete a 12-under round containing an eagle and 10 birdies on a par-71 course at the Portugal Masters on Friday.

It was the first sub-60 round on the European Tour. There have officially been 10 on the U.S. PGA Tour, with one of them a 58 by Jim Furyk in 2016 at the Travelers Championship.

"I obviously knew I was in with a shout of shooting a low one when I made a good start," said Fisher, who reached the turn in 28 after five birdies and an eagle at the par-5 fifth hole at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

"It was important to keep reminding myself that I was out there to have some fun, enjoy it, and not get too tentative. When you've got a good round going, it's easy to do that," he added after ending the day in a three-way tie for the lead on 12-under 130 alongside compatriot Eddie Pepperell (66) and Lucas Herbert of Australia (67).

Fisher birdied Nos. 10-12, then No. 15, before saving par with a 20-foot putt at the 16th. He tapped in for birdie from three feet at No. 17 and held his nerve down the last, hitting his tee shot down the middle of the fairway and safely finding the green with his approach.

"Very different to a couple of years ago on this green," Fisher said beside No. 18, "when I was fighting to keep my card. I had that in the back of my mind, thinking, 'You know what, things could be worse.' It was fun, I tried to enjoy it."

There have been 19 rounds of 60 on the European Tour. Eighteen players have done so, with Darren Clarke achieving it twice.

Fisher's only tour title came in 2011 at the Czech Open.

"A special moment for such a special guy," tweeted Thomas Bjorn, Europe's Ryder Cup captain. "Couldn't be prouder of you."

Sergio Garcia, looking to get back into form ahead of next week's Ryder Cup, was back on 6-under 136 after a 70.

Our super-handy guide to all the 59s in PGA Tour (and pro golf) history

/content/dam/images/golfdigest/fullset/2022/2/The-59-club-for-article.jpg

With improvements in equipment, analytics and fitness, the sub-60 score has become a more common occurrence in the past decade-plus. But 59 remains a magic number, and feat rare enough that those who have done it on the PGA Tour can claim to be part of a club more select than those who have walked on the moon. At the very least, it’s just about the only thing the likes of Paul Goydos and Chip Beck can brag about to Tiger Woods. Although, we're guessing they'd never actually do that.

Of course, not all 59s are equal. And for that reason, as we celebrate the 59th day of 2022 by honoring golf's most spell-binding number, we’ve broken them down into various categories. We've kept this to the PGA Tour, European Tour and LPGA Tour. Only the best of the best. Although, shout-out to Alejandro del Rey for firing a 14-under 58(!) at the Challenge Tour’s Swiss Challenge in 2021. Anyway, here’s our rundown.

The OG 59: Al Geiberger

Or maybe it should be the “AG” 59 for Al Geiberger, who became the first player to post this magic number in the second round of the 1977 Danny Thomas Memphis Classic. And how dare they ask what my lowest round is! That's a HIPAA violation! Seriously, though, Geiberger deserves a lot of credit for being the first to pull it off. And it came on a par 72 to boot, at Colonial Country Club in Memphis. The major champ and 11-time PGA Tour winner also signs autographs still with "Mr. 59." What a legend.

The best 59: Jim Furyk

159810237ML00277_BMW_Champi

Sam Greenwood

Jim Furyk at 2013 BMW Championship. Furyk beat the field by 12.1 shots during that second round. He could have spotted Patrick Reed a shot per hole that day … and still won. In fact, it was the best score of the day by six shots—matching Geiberger for the biggest differential. Unfortunately for Furyk, he didn’t win the tournament, finishing T-3. But this wouldn’t be the last we’d hear of him going really, really low. And we know what you’re thinking. Yes, this 59 was even better than …

The 59 that was actually a 58: Jim Furyk

Jim Furyk celebrates 58.jpg

Getty Images

Furyk flexed on everyone at the 2016 Travelers Championship, when he didn’t just break 60, he broke golf’s magic number. “Oh, you think 59 is cool? That’s cute. Here’s a 58! Bam!” Now I’m paraphrasing, but that’s basically what Furyk said on his way to shooting a final-round 58 at TPC River Highlands. “Call me Mr. 58!” Furyk screamed after sinking his final putt. Again, I’m paraphrasing. But he really does deserve to be called that. Furyk remains the only player to shoot two sub-60s. He also remains the only player to shoot two sub-60s and not win either time. But don’t call him that. Mr. 58 sounds much cooler.

The “Ms. 59” 59: Annika Sorenstam

golfworld-2011-06-gwsl03_fireworks.jpg

Scott Halleran/Getty Images

With all due respect to the guys, Sorenstam is the greatest golfer to ever break 60 on a major tour. And she remains the only player to do it on the LPGA Tour. Sorenstam’s 59 came in the second round of the 2001 Standard Register Ping when she was the low lady of the day by five shots and shot 10.4 strokes better than the field average. She would wear a hat with the nickname “Ms. 59” embroidered on it shortly after. What a boss. Sorenstam would go on to win that week. Of course, back then she basically won every week.

The most dramatic 59 we could kind of see coming: David Duval

401734

Double D was on an absolute heater when he arrived in Palm Springs in 1999. He’d already won his previous start at Kapalua and he was in the midst of a stretch in which he’d win six of 14 starts and move to No. 1 in the world. Still, a 59 in the final round—and this was when the event was still five rounds!—capped by an eagle on the last hole to win the tournament is pretty darn dramatic.

Even the mild-mannered Duval got fired up for that. With whatever that celebration was.

The most dramatic 59 we definitely didn’t see coming: Stuart Appleby

103192566

Scott Halleran

Another walk-off 59! Appleby was an eight-time PGA Tour winner, but had gone more than four years without winning when he arrived at the inaugural Greenbrier Classic in 2010. And he still trailed by seven shots entering Sunday, but an eagle and nine birdies, including an 11-footer on the last, gave the 39-year-old the final win of his PGA Tour career. Look at how he even walked that final putt in like Kevin Na! Amazing. So Stu wins for "the most badass cool finish 59" as well.

MORE: This is it, this is the greatest 59 celebration in golf history

The most random 59 ever: Kevin Chappell

A Military Tribute At The Greenbrier - Round Two

Jared C. Tilton

This could also be characterized as the most heroic 59. After all, Chappell was making his return to the PGA Tour 10 months after announcing he would undergo microdiscectomy surgery. But in his first start back on a major medical extension, he looked better than ever at the Greenbrier in 2019. He tied a tour record with nine consecutive birdies and shot 59 in the second round. The magic, unfortunately for the former NCAA champion at UCLA, went away quickly. Chappell shot rounds of 73 and 72 over the weekend to finish T-47. And sadly, he hasn’t been heard from much since.

The most random 59 on foreign soil: Oliver Fisher

oliver-fisher-portugal-masters-2018-59.jpg

Warren Little/Getty Images

Fisher arrived at the 2018 Portugal Masters ranked 287th in the world. He left as the first player in European Tour history to shoot 59. Amazingly, the tour had produced 19 60s before, but never a 59. And, technically, it won’t ever again since it’s now the DP World Tour. Anyway, Fisher didn’t win that week. In fact, he barely finished in the top 10, but he’ll always have that piece of history.

The most predictable 59: Justin Thomas

170112-justin-thomas-59-ball.jpg

Coming off a pair of wins in which he shot a combined 45 under par, including the previous week in Hawaii, Thomas stayed hot in the first round of the 2017 Sony Open. It seemed like a foregone conclusion he’d roll in his eagle putt on the final hole, and he did to become the youngest player to break 60. Well, on the PGA Tour, that is. Ryo Ishikawa shot 58 on the Japan Tour when he was 18. At 23, JT was practically a middle-aged man by comparison. Still, it was impressive. As was Thomas winning wire-to-wire that week. Oh, and we're pretty sure he has bragged to Tiger about it.

The most, um, Canadian 59: Adam Hadwin

adam-hadwin-59-ball-career-builder-2017.jpg

This one goes to Hadwin, because, well, he’s the only Canadian on the list and we couldn’t think of anything else to say. But Hadwin certainly had things going during the third round of the 2017 CareerBuilder Challenge, making 13 birdies on the par-72 La Quinta CC layout. The downside: He couldn’t break 70 the next day and he finished runner-up. Still, not a bad week, eh ? Sorry, Adam. We'll think of something better next time.

The most workmanlike 59: Chip Beck

1048283986

PGA TOUR Archive

Beck is best known for laying up at the 1993 Masters—a decision that wound up being the genesis of the movie “Tin Cup”! —but he was firing at flags all day during the third round of the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational. Beck didn’t have any eagles, but rather racked up 13 birdies on his clean card to become the second player to shoot 59, 14 years after Geiberger. Like that 1993 Masters, though, Beck came up short here as well. However, there was not a movie made about his T-3 finish.

The best way-to-stick-with-it 59: Brandt Snedeker

Wyndham Championship - Round One

Kevin C. Cox

Snedeker is not the only golfer to shoot 59 with a bogey on his card, but he is the only one to pull it off after beginning his round with a bogey. In fact, Sneds started his tournament with a bogey on No. 10 at Sedgefield Country Club at the 2018 Wyndham Championship and didn’t really turn it on until he got to the front nine. There, he shot an eight-under-par 27, including a birdie on his final hole, to get to 59. He went on to a wire-to-wire win. Well, if you don’t count that opening bogey. Don’t ever give up, kids. Don’t ever give up.

The least impressive 59s: Paul Goydos and Scottie Scheffler

golfworld-2010-07-gwsl07_wip0711.jpg

Darren Carroll/Getty Images

Look, no matter how you look at it, shooting a 59 is impressive. Obviously. Heck, most weekend hacks would take that for nine holes. HOWEVAH, the days Goydos and Scheffler went really low, well, just about everyone was going really low. Both Goydos at the 2010 John Deere Classic and Scheffler at the 2021 Northern Trust only led by one shot despite opening those respective tournaments with a 59.

1267547666

Steve Stricker nearly matched Goydos, and we’re still stunned Dustin Johnson didn’t do even better than Scheffler considering he was 11 under through 11 holes at TPC Boston that day. Making us even forget the early heroics of Goydos and Scheffler even more? Stricker and Johnson wound up winning those tournaments. But, again, they—and the rest of this group—can always say they've done something that Tiger, Jack, Hogan, Arnie, etc. have never done. Take that, legends.

Oli Fisher shoots first ever 59 on European Tour

Published: 21 September 2018

59 on european tour

Oli Fisher earned a place in the golfing history books today when he became the first-ever European Tour player to break the 60 barrier.

Fisher, who turned 30 last week, handed himself a belated birthday present with a record-breaking score of 59 in the second round of the Portugal Masters.

It was the performance and round of a lifetime by Fisher who registered ten birdies and an eagle in his bogey-free 12-under-par, history-making 59 over the Victoria course in the Algarve.

Previously 19 players had carded rounds of 60 on the European Tour and Fisher came within a whisker of emulating Jim Furyk’s 58 on the PGA Tour in 2016 – his putt on the 18th green agonisingly grazed the hole and stayed above ground! There have been almost 700,000 rounds on the European Tour before any beat 60. 

Fisher is currently placed 287 in the world rankings and, to date, his only European Tour success saw him lift the Czech Open seven years ago.

Said an overjoyed Fisher: It feels great, and it was fun, I tried to enjoy it and thankfully got over the line.

“I started off with three straight birdies and then kept it going. I’m just pleased that I two-putted from 40ft on the last.

“It was very different to a couple of years ago on this green fighting to keep my card. I had that in the back of my mind.”

Another record set in stunning sequence for Mizuno irons

59 on european tour

Oliver Fisher continued a staggering period for Mizuno on tour – carding the first round of 59 on the European Tour with his MP-18 irons.

There had been 19 rounds of 60 but the sub-60 barrier had yet to be broken in over 680,000 rounds. Fisher’s 59 included ten birdies and an eagle in a bogey-free 12 under par.

“It feels great,” he said “I started off the round great with three straight birdies and then kept it going. I saw that you guys were out here and it was in the back of my mind all day.  I’m just pleased that I two-putted there from 40-foot on the last.” Oliver Fisher.

Fisher’s win added to a sequence of wins for Mizuno irons (many by non contracted players) – including consecutive US Open’s (2017/18) and the 2018 PGA Championship.

The Pretty Reckless to Support AC/DC on 2024 PWR Up European Tour

Taylor Momsen and the Pretty Reckless will support AC/DC on the "Hells Bells" band's upcoming 2024 European tour . The news was announced on Monday morning (March 25) when AC/DC shared a poster for their first Euro swing in eight years, which will feature the "Only Love Can Save Me Now" band serving as the only opener on all 24 dates of the stadium outing slated to kick off on May 17 at Veltins Arena in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

"It's f–king AC/DC. That's it," the band says when asked to describe their excitement about hitting the road with the "Dirty Deeds" icons.

AC/DC's first European tour in nearly a decade will find the band playing with a line-up featuring singer Brian Johnson, guitarist Angus Young, rhythm guitarist Stevie Young, drummer Matt Laug and Jane's Addiction bassist Chris Chaney replacing longtime bassist Cliff Williams; Williams retired from the band at the conclusion of their 2016  Rock  or Bust tour, returning to the fold briefly for the 2020  Power Up  album. Johnson was temporarily replaced by Guns ‘N Roses singer Axl Rose in 2016 due to Johnson's battle with hearing loss issues.

The AC/DC tour will hit Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria and Switzerland before touching down at London's Wembley Stadium for a pair of shows on July 3 and 7, then moving on to Germany, Slovakia and Paris and winding down at Croke Park in Dublin, Ireland on August 17. The European tour is the first run of gigs since AC/CD's long-awaited return to the stage at last year's all-star hard rock Power Trip Festival in Indio, California.

Rory McIlroy, Shane Lowry to team at Zurich Classic of New Orleans

Change Text Size

The Irish are headed to New Orleans.

Rory McIlroy and Shane Lowry will play together at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, the two-man team event contested at TPC Louisiana, April 20-23. It will mark McIlroy’s tournament debut, while Lowry will make his fifth appearance and first since 2022.

This will be the Irishmen’s first team event together on the PGA TOUR. They were teammates on the last two European Ryder Cup teams. McIlroy and Lowry lost their only match as a duo, a 4-and-3 loss to Tony Finau and Harris English in Four-ball at the 2021 Ryder Cup.

The Zurich Classic’s first and third rounds utilize a Four-ball (best ball) format, while the second and fourth rounds are played as Foursomes (alternate shot).

The friendship between McIlroy, 34, and Lowry, 36, stretches the entirety of their professional careers. The two represented Ireland at the 2007 European Amateur Team Championships. McIlroy turned professional later that year with Lowry two years behind him. The duo has grown particularly close in recent years. Both live in South Florida. Their wives and kids are friends.

McIlroy echoed a similar sentiment in an interview with the Irish Independent last fall .

“I feel over the last couple of years that Shane's been one of my biggest advocates. He's a great person to be around, and a really good influence on me,” he said. "There's parts of Shane that I really love; I see how he lives his life; I see how he is with his girls, and the relationships he has with the people from home that are still close to him.

McIlroy added, "He enjoys his life and everything he's worked for, and I think spending time with him makes me a better version of myself."

That will be the goal at the Zurich Classic, too.

Lowry has amassed two top-five finishes in six TOUR starts this season. He finished T4 at the Cognizant Classic in The Palm Beaches and followed it with a solo third at the Arnold Palmer Invitational presented by Mastercard. Lowry is 25th in the FedExCup and 34th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Lowry’s best finish at the Zurich Classic was 13th in 2022.

McIlroy has four top-25 finishes this season, highlighted by a T19 at THE PLAYERS Championship. It's a solid but unremarkable start for a player who expects those top-25s to be top-fives every week. Maybe playing alongside a close friend will spark him. McIlroy is 58th in the FedExCup and maintains his position at No. 2 in the OWGR.

As for their competition – more teams will be announced in the coming weeks. Among the teams already revealed are defending champions Nick Hardy and Davis Riley. Sahith Theegala and Will Zalatoris announced their partnership earlier this week.

Malnati wins Valspar to earn Masters trip. Nelly Korda returns to No. 1 with another win

PALM HARBOR, Fla. — Peter Malnati got a great break and followed that with an even better shot Sunday, a 5-iron to 6 feet for birdie on the 17th hole that carried him to a 4-under 67 and a two-shot win at the Valspar Championship on Sunday and earn his first trip to the Masters.

Malnati tapped in for par on the final hole for only his second PGA Tour victory. He won by two over Cameron Young, who made it easier on him by taking bogey on the final hole for a 68. Young now has seven runner-up finishes without a win.

Malnati’s approach on the 16th went long and left into gnarly rough some 50 feet from the pin, leaving him a tough chip to try to save par and stay tied. But his foot was on a sprinkler head, which entitled him to a free drop. With the extra club length, he was able to drop it on the fringe and use putter, which he sent down to short range for par.

On the par-3 17th into wind, Malnati hit a laser to 6 feet for birdie. Up ahead, Young hit his drive well left, got it on the green and three-putted from 50 feet for bogey.

Malnati goes to the Masters for the first time and gets a two-year exemption. He also is assured of getting into the remaining four $20 million signature events without any help.

PALOS VERDES ESTATES, Calif. — Nelly Korda made bogey on her final two holes to fall into a playoff and atoned for it quickly, making a 12-foot birdie putt to beat Ryann O’Toole in the Fir Hills Seri Pak Championship to return to No. 1 in the world.

Korda, who closed with a 2-under 69, won for the second time this year, both of them involving surprising collapses and amazing revivals.

Korda was playing for the first time since the end of January, when she lost four shots over three holes before an eagle-birdie finish to win. She seized control Sunday with an 18-foot eagle on the par-5 14th.

O’Toole holed a 20-foot par putt on the 18th for a 66, and that looked to be good only for second place until Korda’s bogey-bogey finish. They finished at 9-under 275, and the playoff ended quickly.

Korda, who now has 10 LPGA titles, replaces Lilia Vu at the top of the women’s world ranking.

EUROPEAN TOUR

SINGAPORE — Jesper Svensson of Sweden closed with a 9-under 63 and beat Kiradech Aphibarnrat on the third playoff hole to win the Porsche Singapore Classic for his first European tour title.

Svensson tapped in for par at the par-5 18th on the third extra hole. Aphibarnrat could only make bogey after his third shot rolled over the green and down the slope at the Laguna National Golf Resort Club.

Svensson matched the course record and was one shot better than his Thai opponent. Both finished on 17-under 271 to force a playoff. Both players made birdies on the first playoff hole and the matched pars on the second before the decisive third trip up the 18th.

Overnight leader David Micheluzzi finished in a share of seventh place after a final-round 73 left him five shots behind. Shane Lowry had a 72, leaving the former British Open champion nine shots off the lead.

PGA TOUR CHAMPIONS

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. — Padraig Harrington won the Hoag Classic at windy Newport Beach Country Club for his seventh PGA Tour Champions victory, rebounding from a double bogey with birdies on the final two holes.

After driving left into trouble and dropping two strokes on the par-4 16th, Harrington made a downhill 15-footer on the par-3 17th and got an 8-footer to fall on the par-5 18th for a one-stroke victory over Thongchai Jaidee.

Harrington closed with a 2-under 69 to finish at 14-under 199. The 52-year-old Irishman will be inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in June. He won British Open in 2007 and 2008 and the PGA Championship in 2008.

Jaidee, from Thailand, also had a 69, parring the 18th after leaving his approach short and pitching through the green.

Miguel Angel Jimenez, the Spaniard playing alongside Harrington and Jaidee in the final group, bogeyed the 17th in a 68 that left him two strokes back.

OTHER TOURS

Epson Tour rookie Briana Chaco closed with a 2-under 69 for one-shot victory over Jessica Porvasnik and Kim Kaufman in the Atlantic Beach Classic, a 54-hole event that ended Saturday. ... Rasmus Neergaard-Petersent closed with a 1-under 71 and held on for a two-shot victory in the Kokhata Challenge in India on the Challenge Tour. ...

It’s just a song [‘Revolution Radio’] about being a survivor.”
