The craziest man in professional golf just shot 59

Woody Austin, one of the most charismatic guys in professional golf, shot a 59 at the Diamond Resorts International only a day after Justin Thomas’s 59 at the Sony Open.

Austin had 10 birdies and an eagle, which added up to 43 points in the modified Stableford scoring format and a 59 in stroke play. He just added himself to the once exclusive list of golfers to card sub 60 rounds.

The event features a pro side consisting of 27 PGA Tour Champions players and four LPGA players, and a celebrity side with 47 celebs and athletes.

He thought he had carded a 60, until he was told otherwise.

“I didn’t know it was a par-71 so when I walked off the last green I thought I shot 60. Everybody goes, ‘No, it’s a par-71.’ So, ah, cool.”

Take a look at some of the shenanigans this guy has got himself into.

2017 is looking like it’s going to be a year full of low scores!
