Everyone welcome Will Grimmer to the club, the youngest member of the 59 club. Congrats.
16-year-old Grimmer shot 59 in competition at Pinehurst No. 1, Thursday at the North & South Junior Tournament. The high school JUNIOR to be from Cincinnati was only one under through five holes before he let loose on the course. He posted a 30 on the front nine, 29 on the back.
He came to his final hole (9th) needing a birdie to break 60. His approach on the 148-yard par-3 landed about 20 feet past. No worries, he nailed the putt for a 59.
Grimmer joins Al Geiberger, Chip Beck, David Duvall, Stuart Appleby, Jason Gore, Annika Sorenstam, Notah Begay and Paul Goydos with his perfect round.
His dues are due immediately....
