CALGARY, Alberta (AP) --- Brady Schnell shot a 13-under 59 on Friday in the ATB
Financial Classic, holing out from 122 yards for eagle on the par-4 ninth hole
to become the second player in PGA Tour Canada history to break 60.
The 29-year-old Schnell, a former University of Nebraska player from Milford,
Iowa, used a 52-degree gap wedge on the final hole at Sirocco Golf Club. He
fell a stroke short of the tour record of 58 set by Jason Bohn on a par-71
course in the 2001 Bayer Championship.
Schnell opened with a 71. He was tied for third --- two strokes behind leader
Brock Mackenzie --- at 14 under.
Mackenzie followed his opening 65 with a 63.
