Davis Thompson (24, USA), a rookie on the PGA tour, set a new record by hitting 5 eagles in two days.
Thompson scored 3 eagles, 4 birdies and 2 bogies in the 2nd round of the PGA Tour American Express (total prize money: 8 million dollars) held at the Nicklaus Tournament Course (par 72, 7,147 yards) in La Quinta, California on the 21st (Korean time). and shot an 8-under-par 64. 안전놀이터
Thompson, who recorded 126 strokes at 18 under par for two days, ran alone in first place, ahead of second place Yon Ram (Spain) by two strokes.
The Eagle record stands out. Thompson also caught two eagles in the first round the day before and hit five eagles in two days.
This is the most eagle-tied record in a 72-hole event on the PGA Tour since 1983. Last year’s Canadian Open Justin Rose (England), FedEx St. Jude Championship Dustin Johnson (USA) in 2020, and Barbasol Championship Austin Cook (USA) in 2019 set the record.
But Thompson has two more rounds left. If you add an eagle in the remaining rounds 3 and 4, you will set a new record.
Thompson, who turned pro in 2021 after rising to world number one in the amateur world in 2020, entered the PGA Tour this season. A tie for ninth place at the Fortinet Championship in September last year was the best result, but they are aiming for the best performance and victory in this tournament.
