Who Holds the Lowest Score at the Top Golf Courses in the World? [Infographic]
A recent tournament at Pebble Beach saw Texas Tech University golfer Hurly Long set a course record of 61.
His win got us thinking about the lowest scores to be shot on the PGA Tour and at some of its famed courses.
- TPC River Highlands Golf Club – Jim Furyk not only holds the course record, but his score of 58 was the lowest PGA Tour score recorded in the competition’s history.
- Conway Farms Golf Club – Furyk nearly broke his own record of 58, but he came up just short when he shot a 59.
- Augusta – Greg Norman (1996) and Nick Price (1986) co-own the lowest score (63) to be shot at. Neither of the two stars ever won the Masters, however.
- Scotland’s St. Andrews – Six players hold the course record of 62. Victor Dubuisson, George Coetzee, Paul Casey, Tommy Fleetwood, Louis Oosthuizen and Tyrrell Hatton have all recorded the low score.
- Pennsylvania’s Oakmont Country Club – in 1973, Johnny Miller shot a course record 63.
- Pebble Beach – Before Hurly Long’s 61, the PGA Tour’s Tom Kite and David Duval shot 62 in 1983 and 1997, respectively.
- Wisconsin’s Whistling Straits – played host to the 2010 PGA Championship, and W.C. Liang’s 64 low score.
- Pinehurst – has seen three golfers shoot a 62. Tom Watson and Gibby Gilbert both did it in 1973. Hale Irwin equaled the feat four years later.
- Sawgrass – Fred Couples (1992) and Greg Norman (1994) shot scores of 63 at.
- Pine Valley – has had two players score 64. Robert C. Lewis Jr. and Mike McCoy putted their way to the course record in 1981 and 2012, respectively.
