Kevin Sutherland authored a 13-under-par 28-31=59 in his second round of the Dick's Sporting Good Open on the Champions Tour to become the first to break 60 in the 35-year history of the circuit.
And he did so with a bogey at the par-4 18th hole to conclude his round. Sutherland turned 50 on the Fourth of July, so this week's stop in Endicott, New York, is just his third with the 50-and-older crowd. As the splits above indicate, he tore up the par-37 front nine at En-Joie Golf Club, recording seven birdies and an eagle. His only par occurred on the par-4 ninth. Sutherland got back to work immediately after the turn, with birdies at 10 and 11. After three more pars, he birdied 15, 16 and 17 to put 58 if not 57 into play. At 14-under 130 through 36 holes, he was four strokes clear of the field with plenty of golf remaining today with one round remaining on Sunday. There were nine 60s on the Champions Tour before Sutherland's breakthrough. Sat, Aug 16, 2014 03:18:00 PM
