16-Year-Old Golf Prodigy Shot A 61 Twice In Three Days

by 5 years ago

According to Dallas News:

Playing with friends on his birthday last Thursday, Scheffler shot 10-under 61 at Northwood, breaking the course record held by Hunter Mahan. This came exactly one week after Northwood celebrated the 60th anniversary of hosting the 1952 U.S. Open.

At least Scheffler paid homage, sort of, to Open champ Julius Boros by taking only eight putts on the back nine. In 1952 Boros had 11 putts on the back nine in the morning round then one-putted seven of the final nine greens in the afternoon.

Two days after scorching Northwood, Scheffler shot 9-under 61 at Dallas Country Club, matching the mark set recently by Kelly Kraft on the remodeled layout.

“He’s a phenomenal talent,” said Royal Oaks head pro Randy Smith, Scheffler’s instructor. “He was just playing for fun. We’d like to see him take that score to a tournament.”

If you ask me, Andy dropped the ball not giving Scottie a Bro of the Week nomination. Looks like I might finally have a iron-clad reason to fire that son of a bitch. It's what dead, faceless Reggie would have wanted.
