Crazy but True: Unknown Australian Posts Lowest Round in Golf History
For most of us amateur golfers, completing an entire round without losing a ball is an achievement.
Compare that, then, to Australian Rhein Gibson who just broke the world record for the lowest round of golf in history.
With friends at the Rivers Golf Club in Oklahoma, Gibson shot an incredible 16-under-par to finish with a round of 55—the lowest in history and a new world record.
Gibson started off his record-breaking day with par on the first hole before two eagles and six birdies in eight holes saw him close the front nine at 10-under-par.
The story on the back nine wasn't any different for the 26-year-old, who opened up with two pars before storming home with six birdies to post an incredible 16-under-par.
Speaking on the occasion, Gibson commented:
"I just kind of got hot I guess and every putt I hit went in—that's the best I can explain it, to be honest..."
With Gibson's phenomenal score in mind, I might just book myself in for a round of golf tomorrow.
Who knows? I might even find all the balls I've lost.
