It's no secret that PGA Tour players are the best in the world. Whether you are watching them on the television, or in person at a tournament, their skills can wow even the best golfers on the planet.

Playing a golf course in Utah recently, that once again proved to be the case for multiple time PGA Tour winner, Tony Finau, who shot a rather ridiculous 60 on a golf course that measured some 8000+ yards!

The scorecard, which you can see above, included 10 birdies and an eagle, as a front nine of 31 was backed up by a back nine of 29. Rather ridiculous considering some of the holes are over 600 yards, with the opener measuring a colossal 718!

Looking at the scorecard, we would have to say the most impressive feats came at the 244-yard par 3 11th, which Finau birdied, then eagled the next hole, a 673-yard par 5. Three strokes on a 673-yard hole is rather sickening...

 It isn't the only freakish round that we have seen in 2022. Earlier this year, Australian, Ben Murphy, carded 11 birdies and 2 eagles for a 15-under-par round of 57, whilst one golfer from Winnipeg, Canada made an eagle, albatross and hole-in-one all in one round!
