Golf – Portugal Masters ’18: Oliver Fisher Makes A Record In The First Round

Oliver Fisher

In the European Tour history at the Portugal Masters, English golfer Oliver Fisher has carded the first round of 59.

The 30-year-old made 10 birdies and an eagle for a 12-under 2nd round in Vilamoura and simply passed up going even lower on the last hole.

18 players have checked rounds of 60 on the European Tour, while Jim Furyk hit 58 on the PGA Tour in 2016.

Fisher, who hails from Chingford in Essex, saw his long birdie putt at the 18th, to tie with American Furyk’s mark, graze the hole.

Fisher began with 3 birdies and afterward eagled the standard par-five 5th before including further picks up the 6th and 8th to achieve the turn in 28.

He birdied the following 3 holes, and picked up more shots on the 15th and 17th for the least round in the 46 long years of the European Tour.
