Golf without discretion

LeBron James overshadows Goydos’ 59

with 2 comments

Golf history was made earlier today at the John Deere Classic — and nobody even knew it was happening. While the sports world was getting another heaping helping of LeBron James trade talk, Paul Goydos was actually doing something newsworthy during the time of the day when the most important thing on tv tends to be that spicy telenovela on channel 13.

Goydos, who’s known more for his carefree personality and quotability than his ability to go low on the golf course, managed to tie the record for the lowest round in a PGA Tour event with a 59 in the opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The spotless round, which included 12 birdies and not a single bogey, became a reality for the tour journeyman when he fired a back nine 8-under 28 to tie the record. The worst part of the whole round was that nobody was around to watch it, unless of course you happened to have a ticket to the tournament.

  1. I Do not guess LeBron James is going away to cheerful trendy Miami. Nearby he will not exist the asterisk of the show off and desire encompass to share the public interest on other people. He will not take place the soft unspecified any longer. He’s a insignificant town personality and the full-size city yearn for bear out to happen too much for him. I besides conceive with the aim of it is without a solution to certification championship.
