It's known that 59 is the magic number for golfers.

The magical 59 is sought after by the most elite of players and it's front-page news whenever a sub-60 card is signed.

That's why the feat accomplished by former Eastern Kentucky golfer Jesse Massie is even more impressive.

Massie, playing the 6,540-yard, par-72 Glenmary Country Club in Louisville, shot a ridiculous 56 --- yes, you read that right, a 56!

Massie, who has been trying to make it in professional circuits, accumulated 14 birdies, three pars and an eagle in his potentially- record breaking round.

Massie told the Louisville Courier-Journal:

“Coming up 18 I said, ‘Nobody is going to believe this,’” Massie said. “I can’t even believe it.”
