For the 3rd time in history, a golfer has shot a 59 on the Longshore golf course.
This time though, there’s no asterisk.
The other day, assistant club pro Chris Davies fired that record-tying score.
That ties the round shot previously by Andrew Gai and former head pro John Cooper.
However, Gai was playing alone — so it’s unofficial. And Cooper’s round came when the 17th hole was under renovation. The hole was playing as a par 3, making the course a par 68.
Davies was playing in a threesome, on the par 69 course.
Actually, he does have an asterisk. But it’s a great one.
Davies — who in addition to his other duties is in charge of the junior program — got a hole-in-one on his record-tying afternoon. It came on the 8th hole.
So while the traditional “ace” drinks were on him, we should all drink a round to his incredible round.
