Rookie Scheffler Shoots 59, DJ Leads

TPC Boston has always been a very ‘gettable’ golf course, especially for it to be used in the PGA Tour’s FedexCup Playoffs. That continued to be true on Friday as Tour rookie Scottie Scheffler became the 11th player in the history of the Tour to break 60 by posting an -11 59. He is also now the second youngest, at 24, to have pulled off that feat.

Only Jim Furyk has gone lower than 59; he did so with a 58 in 2016 at the Travelers. Despite that mammoth day, he trails leader Dustin Johnson by two shots after the opening two rounds. Johnson had a 60 on day 2, putting him in great shape as the weekend approaches. After an encouraging first round, Tiger Woods narrowly made the cut as he remained at -3 overall, a whole 12 shots off of Johnson’s lead.
