Jim Furyk fired the sixth 59 in US PGA Tour history 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 three-foot birdie at the ninth hole, his last of the day.
He had 11 birdies, one eagle and one bogey and joined Brandt Snedeker atop the leaderboard.
"Pretty exciting day," said Furyk, 43.
American Furyk got to six-under through his first six holes with four birdies and an eagle at the par-four 15th, where he holed a 115-yard wedge.
