Another 59 watch is in effect this week. Cameron Beckman broke right out of the gate in the third round, birdieing the first six holes at TPC Summerlin.
Why is that impressive? Beckman still has three par-5s left. All on the same course where Chip Beck fired a 59 in 1991.
Beckman has been AWOL since the HP Byron Nelson Championship, when he tied for fifth. Beckman started with rounds of 67-67 at TPC Summerlin to make just his ninth cut of the year, but his card isn't in jeopardy -- he won the Mayakoba Golf Classic at Riviera Maya-Cancun in February.
