One Famous Quad to Another: Goydos Cards a 59

He was “famous” for the quadruple bogey he carded on the 14th hole at Pebble Beach during the AT&T Pro-Am back in February.

With that “quad,” Paul Goydos became one of four players score a “9” on that hole.

On Thursday, at the John Deere Classic, Goydos joined another “party of four” with an outstanding score of 59 on the Par 71,TPC Deere Run course  which was softened by three days of intermittent rain.  He joins David Duval (1999 Bob Hope Classic – Final Round), Chip Beck (1991 Las Vegas Invitational at Sunrise Golf Course – 3rd round) and Al Geiberger, who was the first to shoot 59 (1977 Memphis Classic at Colonial Country Club – 2nd round).

An AP story quoted Goydos saying this about his performance:

“Today was a nuclear bomb. I don’t know where it came from. If I knew that, I wouldn’t be able to touch it.”
