The affable golfer from West Chester, Pa. played a remarkable round and shot a 59 at Conway Farms in suburban Chicago.

Furyk came into the second round nine strokes behind leader Brandt Snedeker. Furyk was 12 under par for the day and he is just one shot behind Snedeker after 36 holes

Furyk needed a birdie on the final hole to get to his magic number. He nailed his four-foot closing putt to become the sixth golfer to shoot 59 in the PGA tour's history.

The crowd stood and roared as Furyk had his moment, and made the most of it.
