LAKEWOOD RANCH, Fla. (AP) Mac Meissner made a 15-foot eagle putt Friday on his final hole for a 12-under 59, becoming the eighth player to break 60 on the Korn Ferry Tour.

The Korn Ferry Tour record is 58 by Stephen Jaeger in 2016 at the Ellie Mae Classic.

Meissner, in his second full year on the PGA Tour's developmental circuit after finishing at SMU, opened with the Lecom Suncoast Classic with a 71 and was just hoping to make the cut. But when he made a 20-foot birdie putt on the eight hole at Lakewood National, he realized he could reach golf's magic number with an eagle on the par-5 ninth hole.
