PGA Tour Record
A very first PGA Tour title hasn’t come as quickly for Viktor Hovland as it has for fellow newbies Matthew Wolff and Collin Morikawa. If there’s any doubt this 22-year-old Norwegian isn’t also genuine, he simply broke a longstanding trip record. And he needed less than four months as a pro to do it.
One of Viktor sponsors is Ping, you can see What’s in the bag Viktor.
Hovland shot an opening 69 at the CJ Cup at Nine Bridges, Jeju Island, South Korean in October 2019 to continue an amazing streak. He now has shot in the 60s for 18 successive PGA Tour rounds, breaking the previous record set by Bob Estes in 2001. Sorry, Bob.
For much of his round, the streak remained in serious jeopardy as Hovland was even par through 11 holes on the par-72 course. But he birdied 3 of his next six holes prior to making par on No. 18 to post yet another sub-70 rating.
Hovland’s historic streak started with a 64 in the final round of the Rocket Mortgage Championship in June. His last 5 last round scores have been 64-65-64-65-64. Decent.
The record dates back to 1983, which is before Hovland was born.
