All the Golfers Who've Shot 58 on Pro Golf Tours

Jim Furyk shot 58 on the PGA Tour

How many golfers have scored 58 on one of the world's major golf tours? So far, there are six such rounds in golf history, all of them since 2001.

What constitutes a "major golf tour"? The definition we're using is any golf tour whose tournaments earn golfers world ranking points. All of the tours listed below are included in the Official World Golf Ranking system. (All six golfers so far who've carded 58 in major pro tour tournament play are men; no 58s have yet been recorded in women's professional golf.)

If we ranked all the 58s by importance, then Jim Furyk's would be No. 1, because it was the first 58 ever scored on the PGA Tour. But the ranking below is chronological.

The List: Rounds of 58 on Pro Golf Tours

  • Jason Bohn, Canadian Tour, 2001 Bayer Championship: The first pro tour 58 was recorded by Bohn at Huron Oaks Country Club in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada, a golf course that was set up as a par-71. So Bohn's 58 was 13-under par, which was the most strokes under par of any of the 58s until 2021. Bohn's 58 was in the final round and helped him to a 2-stroke victory. He even had a bogey, but he also had 10 birdies and two eagles. Both eagles happened in the first seven holes, and Bohn was 9-under after just those first seven holes.

  • Ryo Ishikawa, Japan Tour, 2010 The Crowns: Ishikawa was just 18 years old at the time. His 58 happened on the 6,545-yard Nagoya Golf Club Course, a par-70 layout in Togo, Japan. It was the final round and Ishikawa won by five strokes. He birdied nine of his first 11 holes and finished 12-under with 12 birdies.

  • Stephan Jaeger, Web.com Tour, 2016 Ellie Mae Classic: Jaegar's 58 happened in the first round, and he went on to win by seven strokes with a final score of 250 (which, at the time, was the lowest 72-hole total on any pro tour). It happened on the 7,024-yard TPC Stonebrae course in Hayward, California. Jaeger had 12 birdies and six pars, and birdied his final five holes to record the 58.

  • Jim Furyk, PGA Tour, 2016 Travelers Championship: Furyk's 58, the first 58 in PGA Tour history, happened just one week after Jaeger's historic Web.com Tour round. Furyk shot 58 in the final round at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Connecticut, which was playing 6,841 yards and to a par of 70. The score moved him from 70th at the start of the round to a final placing of fifth. He made 10 birdies and one eagle in his 12-under-par round.

  • Kim Seong-Hyeon, Japan Tour, 2021 Golf Partner Pro-Am Tournament: A Korean golfer playing in Japan, Kim's 58 was 12-under on the par-70 golf course. It happened in the final round and he finished 11th. It was the second 58 on the Japan Tour, the first to to produce two such rounds.

  • Alejandro Del Rey, European Challenge Tour, 2021 Swiss Challenge: The Swiss Challenge was played in Michelbach-Le-Haut, France at Golf Saint Apollinaire, a course 7,374 yards long and playing to a par of 72. Del Rey's 58 was the first ever scored in a major tour round on a par-72 golf course, meaning it was also the first 14-under score for a single round on any such tour. Del Rey had eight birdies and three eagles, including back-to-back eagles within his first three holes.
