Jim Furyk became just the sixth golfer in US PGA Tour history to shoot a 59 on Friday, reaching golf's magic number in the second round of the BMW Championship.

Furyk capped his round at the par-71 Conway Farms Golf Club with a birdie at the ninth hole.

He had 11 birdies, one eagle and one bogey and joined Brandt Snedeker atop the leaderboard.
