Bo Van Pelt shoots 59 in Phoenix Open pro-am

Vanpelt2Talk about a good warm-up!

Bo Van Pelt shot a 59 in the Waste Management Phoenix Open pro-am on Wednesday. PGATour.com's Tour Report has the details:

Van Pelt, who had 10 birdies and one eagle in his round, played his last seven holes in 7 under. He hit the pin on the 17th hole, a 332-yard par 4, and nearly made an ace.

Since the score was shot during the pro-am and not in competition, though, it will not go down in the PGA TOUR record books. There have been five 59s in TOUR history, most recently in 2010 when Stuart Appleby fired one in the final round to win the Greenbrier Classic.

Van Pelt is playing with Kevin Stadler and Kevin Chappell in the first two rounds of the tournament.
