58! It happened....but in Euro Q-school

John Hahn was one better than golf's magic number with a 12-under 58 in the fourth round of Q-school on the European Tour on Tuesday.

Hahn, an American who finished No. 120 on the European Tour this year, made 12 birdies on the shorter Tour Course at the PGA Catalunya Resort. The European Tour said it would not count as a record because preferred lies were allowed in the soggy conditions.

Hahn started on the back nine and opened with five straight birdies. He put together four straight birdies around the turn and closed with a tap-in birdie for 58.

He moved from a tie for 114th into the top 15 with two rounds remaining. The top 25 and ties earn European Tour cards for next year.

A former All-American at Kent State, Hahn turned professional in 2011.

His 58 drew praise from several golf notables Tuesday, including European star Lee Westwood.

Happened here too

I remember reading about the same thing happening at Q school in this country a few years ago. And the PGA treated the 58 in the same way, they don't recognize it as a Tour Low, because it was at Q school, NOT in a PGA tour event. The PGA treats Annika 59 the same way. It was on the LPGA Tour, NOT the PGA tour, so they don't recognize it as one of the few 59's shot on tour. Sad if you ask me.

What would really be SAD would be if this guy does NOT get his tour card at the end of the next two rounds. Can you imagine shooting a 58 and then NOT making the final 25? That would be hard to take.


Putting is easy if you have the Right Putter.
