Yesterday, Will Wilcox of Birmingham, AL did what few players have ever accomplished in professional golf, shoot a 59 in tournament play. In the final round of the Web.Com Tour Utah Championship at Willow Creek CC, Wilcox started the day in a tie for 38th at 10 shots off the lead. After completing his round at 12-under par 59, which included 10 birdies and one eagle, he finished as the clubhouse leader. At the end of the day, Will finished in a tie for 3rd, but is the talk of the golf world, becoming only the 4th player in Web.Com Tour history to post a 59.

After the round, Wilcox explained, “This has been such a dream year for me. From my first Tour victory at the South Georgia Classic to shooting 59 at the Utah Championship, I’ve had several dreams come true this season.”

“When I stood over the putt for 59, I really wasn’t that nervous. I don’t know why, although I think it has to do with the fact I’ve been practicing hard and working hard so it was a situation I had prepared for. Maybe I hadn’t prepared to shoot a 59, but I had prepared to make putts under pressure. Shooting 59 is huge, obviously and it’s something every golfer dreams of.”

    I was a volunteer scorer at the Utah Championship and was privileged to score this group. It was one of the most amazing things that I have ever seen! I am privileged to have witnessed this up close. I was amazed at Will’s composure and friendliness during the round.

    Congrats Will! I look forward to watching you on the PGA tour next year!
