Watch Steven Fisk's Attempt at College Golf's First 59
PRINCEVILLE, HI (October 30, 2017) - The first 59 in college golf was so close Monday, but adding another member to Club 60 was a nice consolation.
Steven Fisk, of Georgia Southern, fired a 12-under 60 in the second round at the Warrior Princeville Makai Invitational to become the 13th college golfer to post that magic 60 number.
Steven Fisk's putt for a 59
And he did so despite some blown chances at the end.
The junior, who opened his round at No. 10 at Makai Golf Club at Princeville, began his day birdie-birdie and went out in 6-under 30. He proceeded to birdie Nos. 1-3 and eagled the fifth to move to 11 under for the round.
A birdie at the seventh put him 12 under on the day and in need of a birdie-par finish for a sub-60 round.
Fisk drove the green at the par-4 eighth and would lag to 4 feet for birdie, which would’ve moved him to 13 under for the round and in need of just a par at the last for a 59.
But he missed the putt low. Fisk gave himself a 16-footer for birdie at No. 9 for 59, yet that putt failed to drop as well.
Still, the 60 was a course and school record and rocketed Fisk 31 spots to solo third at 13 under.
“Steven played incredible today,” said Carter Collins, Georgia Southern’s head coach.
