Hovland Ties PGA Tour Record for Straight Rounds in the 60s (17)

I thought this was pretty cool. Hovland is the most promising Norwegian player in a long time and qualified for the PGA Tour along with another Norwegian (Kristoffer Ventura) this year.

After a final-round 64 on Sunday at Greenbrier, Hovland has now played 17 straight rounds on the PGA tour with rounds in the 60s. That ties Bob Estes' record from 1983.

64, 69, 66, 69, 65, 69, 69, 68, 64, 66, 66, 64, 65, 68, 68, 68, 64.

He had a couple of rounds in the 70s in the KFT playoffs between those rounds, but that's not the PGA tour.

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. – Sunday was a good day for golfers from Norway.

To me, that is a very big, personal. accomplishment. 17 straight (pga) rounds in the 60s. 

Sounds like we will be hearing alot more about this man, and his game. 

Any bets on 20 straight?

Depends on his schedule, I think he's playing the Euro tour this week

In the same way that Rory was the most promising Irish golfer or Tiger the most promising U.S. golfer.

It would not surprise me if Hovland won a major in the next two years. In any case, he is probably the most promising new PGATour member, full stop.

I really like Hovland.  IIRC, it’s his Sundays that really separates him from the other rookies, at least for me.  He always seems to shoot well on Sunday.

With a 69 on Thursday, Hovland now has the record alone and he can increase it further until his next round in the 70's.

64-68-68-68-65-64-66-66-64-68-69-69-65-69-66-69-64-69
