Brandt Snedeker fires 59 at Wyndham Championship

PGA Wyndham Championship- First Round

The Wyndham Championship is the final event before the FedExCup Playoffs start next week.

Jamie Lovemark heads to the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club this week looking to bounce back after missing the cut last time out.

See below as we run through the tournament for you including facts, odds and picks from our own golfing professional Cliff Jackson and Betfair. His lack of distance is less of a factor at Sedgefield, and he's solid once he gets it close (10th in SG: Around-the-Green).

After the Pro-Am, Wyndham officials presented Harvick a check for $10,000 to go towards his foundation. Furyk also shot 59 in the BMW Championship in 2013.

Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk holds the record for the lowest score on the PGA Tour with a 58 in the Travelers Championship in 2016.

The freaky incident came during an incredible run that saw Snedeker pick up seven shots in seven holes, with five birdies, an eagle and a par. Here's a look at the odds to win this year's event.

Henrik Stenson saved his season with a victory here 12 months ago, and this may be a timely moment to reflect on another incredible year on the PGA Tour.

She also cited judges presiding over other cases related to Mueller's Russian Federation investigation to back up her decision. Mueller III, left, in June 2013 in Washington; and President Trump on December 15, 2017, also in Washington.

"I better be smiling", Snedeker said. It was won in 2011 by Webb Simpson (another to return to the winner's circle in 2018), in 2012 by Sergio Garcia, in 2013 by Patrick Reed, in 2014 by Camillo Vegas, in 2015 by Davis Love III, in 2016 by Is Woo Kim and past year by Stenson.

He has also been lethal off the tee, ranking fourth on the PGA Tour in driving accuracy percentage at 71.70 and eighth in distance from the edge of the fairway at 20 feet. SportsLine's model says there are far better values in the 2018 Wyndham Championship field. Simpson has one win this year with six top-10 finishes. 13-16. He then got even hotter on his final nine holes, with six birdies in addition to the shot of the day on No. 6.

One of the quickest players on tour took typically little time, reading a little break and using his pop-stroke to send the ball tracking towards the hole and a piece of history in an event where he recorded his first tour victory in 2007.

Snedeker, who began his round on the back nine, reeled off four consecutive birdies on Nos.

"Nobody could see this coming - trust me", Snedeker said.

"It'll be a special end to the year and I'll have some fresh mojo for the beginning of the next wraparound season", Conners said.
