The kids are good.
Adrich Potgieter, who won the Korn Ferry Tour’s Bahamas Great Abaco Classic two weeks ago, has now shot the 10th sub-60 round in Korn Ferry Tour history with his 11-under 59 during the second round of the Astara Golf Championship at the Pacos Course at Country Club de Bogata in Colombia.
Potgieter is the youngest player to shoot 59 in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event.
The Pacos Course is the shortest on the Korn Ferry Tour, playing at 6,254 yards, as well as being nearly 9,000 feet above sea level. However, narrow fairways and tricky greens always create challenges for players, and there had never been a sub-60 score until Thursday.
However, for the second straight day, a player has recorded a sub-60 round.
Potgieter went out in 7-under 28, playing the back nine at the Pacos Course. Then on the back nine, he added five more birdies, including three in a row on his final three holes, to shoot 59.
Ten birdies, one eagle and even a bogey, but it was enough to record the 10th sub-60 score in Korn Ferry Tour history.
