Playing in his first event of 2017, with a new GBB Epic driver, GBB Epic fairway wood and Chrome Soft X ball in the bag, Adam Hadwin did what only seven players have ever been able to accomplish on the PGA TOUR: record an elusive 59!
Hadwin became just the fourth player to shoot a 59 on a par-72 and his total of 13 birdies (LOL 13 birdies in his first 16 holes) ties the PGA TOUR record for the most in a single round.
*Fun Fact: Callaway PGA TOUR Rep Kevin Napier, who Amanda Balionis just featured in her road trip story, built every club in Hadwin’s bag. “I’m so happy for him,” Napier said in a text exchange. “I still have a cheesy, **** eatin’ grin on my face.”
And of course the social reaction was on point…
