Here's how you shoot 61

In tying the course record with a 9-under 61, Cameron Beckman's 9-under 61 posted nine birdies, avoid any bogeys, needed just 24 putts and hit 15 of 18 greens and 11 of 14 fairways.

It's the lowest score Beckman has ever posted in 974 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. His previous low was 63, which he's shot three times, the latest coming at the 2008 Frys.com Open.

Here's a look at each of those nine birdies in Friday's second round (Beckman started his round on the 10th tee):
