James Hahn has missed a golden chance to shoot the 13th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history as he settled for a 12 under par 60 and a chance to win Barbasol Championship.
Eight strokes back entering the day, Hahn had two eagles in his career-best round to move within two strokes of leader J.T. Poston at Keene Trace in Nicholasville, Kentucky.
"To come up one short stings a little bit," said 39-year-old American Hahn, as he eyed a third tour title.
Hahn's 132-yard approach on the par-4 18th spun back, leaving a 35-foot putt that he missed to the right - a few minutes before second-round leader Poston even teed off.
"I thought it was really good, I thought I had a perfect number," Hahn said. "Balls weren't spinning back at all all day, so I thought it's pin high. I had no idea it was going to spin back 20 feet."
Jim Furyk set the tour record with a 58 in the 2016 Travelers Championship and also is one of 11 players to shoot 59.
Hahn chipped in for eagle on the par-5 15th to get to 11 under and made a 6 1/2 birdie putt on the par-3 17th.
"When I looked at the leaderboard, it said that I was 11 under and I could swear I was 10," Hahn said. "I had no idea what I was shooting at that point, I had to double-check the scorecard and that was kind of the "Oh, boy" moment.
"Yeah, then you start thinking crazy things coming down the stretch, but I pulled it together."
Poston had a bogey-free 66 to get to 19-under 197. He won the 2019 Wyndham Championship for his lone tour title.
Luke List was a stroke back after a 65. He's winless on the tour.
Joseph Bramlett had a 67 to join Hahn at 17 under.
Greg Chalmers was the leading Australian in a tie for 21st at 12 under after a 67.
