Sept. 13 (Bloomberg) -- Jim Furyk became the sixth player to shoot a round of 59 in a U.S. PGA Tour event, going 12 under par in today’s second round of the BMW Championship.

Furyk, 43, had 11 birdies, an eagle and a bogey in his record-tying round of 59 at Conway Farms Golf Club in Lake Forest, Illinois, site of the third event in the Tour’s four-tournament playoff series.

Furyk is now 11 under for the tournament after a 1-over 72 yesterday, tied for the lead with fellow American Brandt Snedeker heading into the weekend.

Stuart Appleby had been the most recent golfer to shoot a 59, in the final round of the 2010 Greenbrier Classic. Paul Goydos, David Duval, Chip Beck and Al Geiberger are the only others with 59s in an official PGA Tour round. Bo Van Pelt shot a 59 during the Phoenix Open Pro-Am this year.
