Snedeker shot an 11-under 59 on Thursday (Friday NZ time), falling one shot shy of matching the PGA Tour record.

He made a 20-foot putt on his final hole to become the 10th player in tour history to break 60.

Snedeker's 59 started off innocently enough.

The 59 is the first on the PGA Tour since Adam Hadwin did it at the CareerBuilder Challenge in January 2017.

Playing at the La Quinta Country Club, one of three course in play for the pro-am tournament, the Canadian carded 13 birdies including the decisive three-footer on his final hole, although a final-round 70 left him one shot behind Hudson Swafford on Sunday evening. Jim Furyk is the only player to do so twice and has the lowest round in history with a 58.

"It wears on you and you've got to be really strong to overcome that and just know that it's going to happen, you just don't know when, where, or how", Snedeker said. He tore it up down the stretch with an 8-under 27 over his last nine holes, with 6 birdies and a 176-yard eagle hole-out at the par-4 6th.

Snedeker, the 2012 FedEx Cup champion, won the Wyndham in 2007.

It's been a somewhat frustrating, turbulent year for Snedeker.

"Golf doesn't owe us anything", Snedeker said.

At No 80 on the points list entering the final event of the tour's regular season, he's nowhere near the playoff bubble and his spot at The Northern Trust next week in New Jersey seems safe.

During his tie for 42nd at the PGA Championship last week in St Louis, Snedeker says he "kind of found something" when he simplified some swing fundamentals and began to feel better about that part of his game.

"Could have been even more special, " he said, "but happy with the way everything turned out".
