15-Year-Old Miles Russell Makes the Cut On a Professional Tour

Miles Russell causes a sensation at the LECOM Suncoast Classic on the Korn Ferry Tour. At just 15 years old, Russell is the youngest player to make the cut on the Korn Ferry Tour. With rounds of 68 and 66 strokes, he is in T26 after two rounds.

Korn Ferry Tour: 15-year-old makes it to the weekend

Russell plays under the American Junior Golf Association and received a sponsor’s invitation for the tournament just four hours from his home town. He was already on course for a weekend sweep with his 68 in the first round, albeit a close one. He started the tournament with four birdies on the first five holes and didn’t suffer his first dropped shot until his tenth hole. On Friday, he fuelled his quest for the weekend with two eagles on the front nine, followed by two birdies on the back nine and just one bogey.

“I knew it would be a good test to see where I stood against some of the best,” Russell told the Tour. “It’s definitely something I’ll remember even when times get tough; I’ll remember that when it happens and go with the flow.”

The previous record was 16 years and 20 days and was set in 2006 by Gipper Finau, a brother of Tony Finau, at the Utah Championship. Russell surpassed the previous record with 15 years, five months and 17 days.

“It’s a cool record to break. I don’t know how much longer … people are getting so good, so young. It could last another week, you never know, but right now it’s pretty cool.”

Should Russell make it into the top 25 at the weekend, he would also be eligible to take part in next week’s tournament, the Veritex Bank Championship. The only thing he has to wait a little longer for is Korn Ferry Tour membership, for which he has to be at least 18 years old.

Lowest round in PGA Tour history: Chilean plays 57

Until recently, the name Cristobal Del Solar may not have rung many bells, but now, it’s etched into golfing history. On Thursday, the Chilean golfer delivered a performance for the ages at the Astara Golf Championship on the Korn Ferry Tour. Del Solar crafted an astonishing 13-under-par round of 57 strokes at the Country Club de Bogota-Pacos in Colombia. With this feat, Del Solar became the first player ever to achieve a score of 57 in an event sanctioned by the PGA Tour.

Record round at a PGA Tour event

Del Solar set this record on an unusually short par-70 course spanning 5718 meters at an altitude of approximately 2700 meters. With six birdies and an eagle on the front nine, he set the pace early with a score of 27 strokes, tying the Korn Ferry record for the lowest nine-hole score. Continuing his impressive play on the back nine, the 30-year-old golfer secured three more birdies and another eagle. With four pars to conclude the round, he solidified his place in golfing history.

In a virtual press conference following his remarkable round, Del Solar emphasized the favorable conditions of the course. Leading the field by only four strokes, his longest iron into a green was merely a 6-iron, even on a par-5 hole. “The course was definitely set up to allow for a very low round,” commented Del Solar. “The pins were tucked, but the greens were so soft that I could hit the driver as close to the green as possible. And when you chip well, the ball stays close to the hole.” Despite his exceptional performance, Del Solar acknowledged room for improvement, particularly lamenting missed opportunities on the latter half of the course.

How good was the 57 really?

Prior to Del Solar’s outstanding achievement, only two players had shot a 58 in PGA Tour-sanctioned tournaments, both in 2016: Stephan Jaeger at the Ellie Mae Classic at TPC Stonebrae and Jim Furyk at the Travelers Championship. In total, twelve players have scored below 60 in PGA Tour-sanctioned events. Due to the course’s short length and the altitude, there were immediate debates questioning the significance of Del Solar’s round. Some argued that it was only the 27th best of all time, as one Twitter user pointed out.

Del Solar himself has a clear perspective on the matter: “Yes, the course is short, we’re playing at altitude, but you still have to be able to get it done. You still have to go out there and make birdies,” remarked the Chilean golfer, who broke the 60 mark for the first time in his career. “I’ve never broken 60 before,” Del Solar added. “The course I play at home (Dye’s Preserve in Jupiter, Florida) is really tough, and when I play really well there, I’m at seven or eight under, but never close to the 60 mark.” Despite the factors favoring a low score, the 57 stands as an impressive feat, sealed by Del Solar with a casual two-putt on the 18th green.
