Appleby is fifth PGA player to shoot 59
WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W.Va. (AP) -- Stuart Appleby hit golf's magic number Sunday, shooting a 59 at the Greenbrier Classic.
Appleby is the fifth PGA Tour player to reach the milestone. The Australian's round came less than a month after Paul Goyos had a 59 at John Deere Classic.
The others to shoot 59 were Al Geiberger at the 1977 Memphis Classic, Chip Beck at the 1991 Las Vegas Invitational and David Duval at the 1999 Bob Hope Classic.
