Odds slashed on Shane Lowry victory on PGA Tour this week

Brandt Snedeker shoots 59 at Wyndham Championship			Kevin C. Cox  Getty Images

Brandt Snedeker just shot the 10th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history on Thursday at the Wyndham Championship in Greensboro, North Carolina with a 11-under 59.

Needing an eagle on the par-five final hole to break 60, Duval followed a flawless drive with a stunning second to six feet and he calmly rolled in the putt to snatch a one-shot win over Steve Pate - the first of four victories for Duval in the year.

A five-iron to two feet at the par-three seventh left Snedeker needing one more birdie for 59.

Snedeker was the ninth different player to shoot 59 or better on the PGA Tour - Jim Furyk did it twice, including a record 58 in 2016 - but the first to do it after starting his round with a bogey.

This is the third consecutive year that the PGA Tour has had a sub-60 round.

A number of golfers with Midlands connections are in the field for the Wyndham Championship including Tommy "Two Gloves" Gainey, Jonathan Byrd, Wesley Bryan and Stewart Jolly. "Now he's just got to rest, relax and start over tomorrow from scratch and go play three more good rounds", said Furyk, who also shot a 59 at the BMW Championship in 2013.

"Golf doesn't owe us anything", Snedeker said.

"When the 5-iron got close on seven, I was like 'Okay, you got to do it - it's not going to get any easier than this, '" he added.

It was the US PGA's first 59 since Canada's Adam Hadwin at last year's Careerbuilder Challenge.

"To step up and have a 20-footer (at the final hole) and know what it means, when I knocked that putt in it was really special to know that I'm part of a small club on tour", he said.

Snedeker finished that side of the course with four birdies for the 32, and then he made six birdies and an eagle on the other side for a 27.

"I better be smiling", Snedeker said.

Thomas chipped in for eagle at the 10th but bogeyed the next, before racking up eight birdies over his next 10 holes. "You've got to keep your head on straight and make sure you're still doing the right stuff and it'll eventually turn around".
