Chip Beck Shoots 59

Thirteen years ago today Chip Beck shot a 59 at the Las Vegas Invitational. Beck shot a 29-30, 13 under par. This round matched Al Geiberger's second round 59 at the 1977 Memphis Classic as only the second sub-60 round in PGA Tour history.

Of course a third player, David Duval, joined this elite club in 1999. David shot a 59 at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic enroute to victory. It was reported that David also shot a 59 a few months ago on the back nine at Whistling Straits while playing a practice round.

"Help me if you can I'm feeling down" - I also think I must be lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him on the golf course yesterday. Now this is strange because usually I see him in the supermarket.

Honest really, last time I saw him there he was right in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.

Then I'm gonna go home, put ma dancin' suit on, munch me some uppers and freak out to that maaaaaaaaad surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on ma lcd tv .

How cool is that boy?

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
