A sore back made Nationwide Tour player and Pro V1x loyalist Trevor Murphy think twice about playing in the Tuesday pro-am at last week's Nationwide Children’s Hospital Invitational.
A 14-under 56 on the par-70, 5,800-yard Gray Course at Ohio State University helped Murphy realize he'd made the right decision.
"Missed a putt for 55," Murphy told Team Titleist, smiling. He used the same ball, a Pro V1x #2 with a black line drawn down the "Pro V1x" lettering, for all 56 shots, which included one eagle, 12 birdies and five pars.
While sub-60 scores seem to be popping up nowadays almost as much as no-hitters (a 14-under 57 was shot today in the Alabama State Junior Championship), Murphy's round still broke the course record by three shots. (He also tied for seventh in the tournament proper, shooting rounds of 73-67-70-67.)
Check out the video below to hear Murphy talk about his nifty 56:
