Nichols enjoying efforts like Goyodos' 59 at John Deere Classic

Posted by Green Fun Store on 8/6/2010
A golf legend from the past doesn't think the next couple of weeks will bring another golfer shooting a 59 in a round, although he certainly is a fan of people doing so.

According to a report from USA Today, Bobby Nichols said he enjoyed the efforts of Paul Goydos at the John Deere Classic and Stuart Appleby during the Greenbrier tournament. Both men managed to swing a 59 during a round and joined the three others who have done it.

"I think the low scores they're shooting are good for the game," Nichols told the paper. "It creates a lot of excitement, and it should draw more attention to the Tour."

While it may be better for golf, lower scores may become rather passe in the coming years. Golfers like Tiger Wood have said that shooting near or under 60 may become more common as golfers further hone their craft.

Nichols said he doesn't think anyone, however, will do it this weekend during the Bridgestone Invitational. Nor does he think a golfer will accomplish it next week during the PGA Championship.ADNFCR-3425-ID-19921428-ADNFCR
