Bill Speros Golfweek Published 6:28 PM EDT Sep 13, 2019 Kevin Chappell shot a 59 during the second round of A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier on Friday. Chappell used a record-tying stretch of nine consecutive birdies to reach 11 under for the day, becoming the 11th player to break 60 in the history of the PGA Tour. Chappell did not end Friday’s second round with the overall lead, however, and sits at 10 under for the tournament, three shots back of the leaders in the first PGA Tour event of the 2019-20 season. Chappell went out in 28 after starting his day with a par on No. 10. He then finished the front nine with eight straight birdies at the Old White Course in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. Chappell’s ninth straight birdie tied Mark Calcavecchia’s PGA Tour record set 10 years ago. Chappell began 2019 on the injured list after undergoing microdiscectomy surgery to treat his ailing back in late 2018. Chappell reached 11 under after a birdie on No. 7, his 16th hole of the day. He parred the final two holes to clinch the 59 after missing a birdie on his final hole. At least one of Chappell’s fellow pros took note.
