Update: Wi finishes with 61

Charlie Wi had already shot 61 on the PGA TOUR -- he did it at the Humana Challenge in 2009 -- but he had a shot at history on Thursday.

Wi arrived at the 16th tee at Monterey Peninsula at 9 under on the par-70 course. If he could birdie two of the last three holes, he'd become the sixth player to shoot 59 on TOUR.

Alas, Wi parred the next two holes. After parring the 500-yard par-4 16th, his birdie putt on the par-4 17th just burned the cup. He parred the 18th to finish at 61, but set the all-time tournament record in the process. The previous low at Monterey Peninsula was Jeff Maggert's 62 in 2011.

Over at Pebble Beach, rookie Danny Lee just missed a birdie putt on the par-4 ninth that would have tied the course record.
