11X PGA TOUR WINNER
Al Geiberger, “Mr. 59”, joined the PGA Tour in 1960. Geiberger won 11 tournaments on the PGA and shot the first-ever below 60 golf round.
The first man to shoot a 59 on the PGA Tour in 1977, Geiberger remained the only man to shoot under 60 in an official round for 14 years. Then came Chip Beck’s 59 in 1991, then David Duval shooting 59 at PGA West in La Quinta in 1999 at what is now the American Express tournament.
Geiberger’s 59 was not only the first but it is widely considered the best of the 59s.
The round was shot in the summer of 1977 in the second round of the Memphis Classic at Colonial Country Club in Memphis. Regarded as a tough course, Colonial played to a par-72 and more than 7,200 yards that day, with Geiberger recording 11 birdies and one eagle for the 59 while using just one ball.
Geiberger’s 59 is one of only four sub-60 rounds shot on a par-72 course. The two 59s shot in the Coachella Valley’s PGA Tour event, Duval’s on the Palmer Course at PGA West and Adam Hadwin’s in 2017 at La Quinta Country Club, were also on par-72 courses.
