The PGA TOUR scoring record wasn’t in the cards for Hunter
Haas on Friday in Las Vegas, but a share of the course record was.
Haas, who started his second round on No. 10, needed just two
birdies over his final four holes Friday to become the sixth player
in PGA TOUR history to reach the 59 mark. Unfortunately, he gave a
shot away at TPC Summerlin's par-4 6th hole. He rebounded with a
birdie on No. 7 to get back to 10 under, but could not convert long
putts on Nos. 8 (43-foot birdie try) and 9 (120-foot eagle attempt)
to bring 59 back into the picture. With his three-putt par on No.
9, Haas dropped to a 10-under 61, tying Tag Ridings (2004) and
Davis Love III (2001) for the TPC Summerlin course record. While
Haas was making his final bid for a 59, Kevin Na birdied five of
six holes to take a two-shot lead at 12 under. Na is playing the
18th at TPC Summerlin to close out his round.
