Say Hello to Mr. 58

I’M LATE TO POSTING THIS on the blog, but I heard about it last week and you probably did, too. In any case, Stephan Jaeger shot a record-setting 58 in the first round of the Ellie Mae Classic on the Tour. The German native carded 12 birdies and six pars at TPC Stonebrae.

“I’m really happy with the way I played,” Jaeger said, “especially on the back nine. You don’t know when those days are going to come, and they come unexpectedly. Days like this are very, very, very rare.”

Yeah, like never-happened-before rare. Absolutely amazing.

Jaeger went on to win the tournament by seven shots, finishing 30-under par. His rounds: 58, 65, 64, 63.
