Woods Describes His One And Only 59 | Golf Monthly

On April 4, 1997, the world had yet to witness Tiger Woods ascend to Greatness. That would come soon enough. A week later, in The Masters, Woods stormed to one of the most famous victories Augusta National has ever witnessed as he dominated to win the Green Jacket by 12 strokes. However, on that early April day a week earlier, then 21-year-old played another Astonishing round that saw him post his only 59 to date.

Woods, who is currently recovering from injuries he sustained in a car accident a year ago, recently spoke to Golf Digest to recount the story behind his lowest-ever round, at Isleworth. Reeling off his list of birdies and eagles as casually as many people would a shopping list, Woods explained: the back nine at Isleworth and I par 10, birdie 11 and 12. I eagle 13. I birdie 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and one. I have a three iron into number three, the par five. I made par. I have a five iron into number seven, the par five, and I made par, and I still shoot 59. ”
