Sebastin Muoz achieves what has never been seen on the PGA Tour by making 60 strokes again

Ehe Colombian golfer Sebastin Muoz emerged as the protagonist after the first round of AT&T Byron Nelson, who finished as leader with the iconic mark of 60 strokes (-12), which by the way was the tournament record.

With this fantastic performance in this tournament held at the TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney (Texas, USA), Muoz also became the first golfer in the history of the PGA Tour to deliver two 60-stroke cards in the same season.

The Colombian’s first time was last November at the RSM Classic in Saint Simons Island (Georgia, USA), where he also signed a round of 60 shots (-10).

The most incredible thing is that the Colombian was at -3 after making a bogey on the 8th hole and that’s where his takeoff began. He played eagle-birdie-birdie-eagle on holes 9 to 12. To make matters worse, the number 73 in the world could have been experiencing a dj vu, since a year ago he already played eagle on holes 9 and 12, as on this occasion.

“It’s a great feeling when everything is working,” a “very happy” Muoz told the media after the first day. “This one was a little more impressive (than the 60-shot round at the RSM Classic). I’ve never gotten a -12 before,” he added.

Another Latino golfer also had a great debut: the Chilean Mito Pereira, who with -8 (four strokes behind Muoz) is tied for second place along with the American Peter Malnati and the South Korean KH Lee. The latter was the winner of this tournament last year.

On the other hand, the Mexican Carlos Ortiz achieved -6, the Chilean Joaqun Niemann was left with -5, and the Argentine Emiliano Grillo and the Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas signed -1.
