First the John Deere Classic, now the Greenbrier. Is shooting under 60 not what it used to be?

Posted by Green Fun Store on 8/5/2010
During the John Deere Classic golf tournament, Paul Goyodos made history by shooting a 59. At that point he was one of only four people to do it.

However, Australian golfer Stuart Appleby recently joined those ranks, as he swung the same score during the final round of The Greenbrier Classic. That rather historic score led him to win the entire tournament, a fact that eluded Goyodos during the John Deere Classic.

And now, other golfers may start considering shooting under a 60 in a round as a feat that isn't as far-fetched as it once was. In a recent piece for, senior writer Steve Elling noted that the mark is being seen as more attainable.

Count Tiger Woods as one of those who thinks that posting a round under 60 isn't as crazy as it used to be.

"Probably not, probably not," Woods said, according to the website. "Because I think it's easier to get to now. It's more attainable."

Before Goyodos' first round during the John Deere Classic, it had been 11 years since someone had shot a 59. Perhaps that length of a wait is now something of the past.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19920545-ADNFCR
