Australian Golfer Finishes with a 16-Under-Par 55

Australian Golfer Finishes with a 16-Under-Par 55

Rhein Gibson, a 26-year-old Australian, shot the lowest score in a single round of golf, scoring a 16-under-par 55. The event, which provisionally set a new world record, happened at the River Oaks Golf Club in Oklahoma.

The same score was achieved by Homero Blancas during the 1960 PGA Tour. However, since that time the qualifying rules have been upgraded, and the record was removed from the books. Because Gibson’s performance meets the current regulations, it will become a new world record after the standard verification procedures.

Gibson began with a routine par, followed by two eagles and one birdie on the succeeding three holes. The ninth hole was over and done with in just 26 shots, resulting in a score of 10-under-par. Six out of the last seven holes were birdies, leading to the record-setting final score of 55.

“I just kind of got hot I guess and every putt I hit went in, that’s the best I can explain it to be honest,” said Gibson, who stayed calm while the game was nearing its end, despite knowing that he was about to make history.

The humble young man admitted that it was difficult to believe he had shot the record-setting score, a feat that even many of the great names in the golf world haven’t managed. “It’s really only starting to sink in now,” he said.
