PGA Tour’s bubble players take center stage at Wyndham

Harold Varner III arrives at the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina looking to stay hot.

The 59 is only the third sub-60 round with a bogey in PGA Tour history, and Snedeker opened up a big five-stroke lead on Martin Flores and D.A. Points in the final event of the 2017-18 PGA Tour regular season. He tore it up down the stretch with an 8-under 27 over his last nine holes, with 6 birdies and a 176-yard eagle hole-out at the par-4 6th. Snedeker missed a 3-foot birdie putt on No. 8. "To know that I'm a part of a small club on Tour, not very many people have done this - really cool feeling right now".

Shane Lowry has been priced up as the 22/1 joint fifth favourite to win this week's Wyndham Championship on the PGA Tour.

"If you had seen me yesterday you would have said there is no way I'm probably going to make the cut let alone shoot 59".

"I got so excited, goosebumps. jumping around like I won the golf tournament and it's Thursday morning", Snedeker said.

The FBI under Comey declined to prosecute Clinton for any possible violations of the Espionage Act. Strzok has insisted that the texts didn't reflect political bias and had not infected his work.

PGA Tour Champions president Greg McLaughlin said: "Mastercard has been a tremendous partner of the PGA Tour since 1995, and we are eager to build on that great history in an important global market with the Mastercard Japan Championship".

Brandt Snedeker predicted low scores at the Wyndham Championship - but not this low.

It was the US PGA's first 59 since Canada's Adam Hadwin at last year's Careerbuilder Challenge. From there, Snedeker posted ten birdies and an eagle to finish 11-under.

Behind Moore and Oda, seven players were tied on 64 and a group of nine on 65 included US Ryder Cup captain Jim Furyk. "Now he's just got to rest, relax and start over tomorrow from scratch and go play three more good rounds", said Furyk, who also shot a 59 at the BMW Championship in 2013.

"Nobody could see this coming - trust me", Snedeker said.
