Mark Calcavecchia sets new PGA Tour record with NINE birdies in a row

Anyone have Calc on their fantasy team today?  Mark Calcavecchia birdied holes 3-11 today in the Canadian Open.  That is a new PGA Tour record and also insanely good.

My personal record is five in a row.  I remember vividly… (Sound of harps, dream state ensues)….  I was playing straight up, nine holes against the #1 amateur in the state.  Yes that isn’t generally a good idea.  Under normal conditions he’d crush me.  But I birdied the first five holes, en route to a one up victory after nine.  Yes, one up.  He ran out of holes.  Needless to say, he was not happy.  I was.

    Mark Calcavecchia also has another awesome scoring record (and also achieved in his “older” years on Tour)…he is the holder of: “PGA Tour Scoring Record – Most Strokes Under Par over 72 Holes,” 2001 Phoenix Open, 256, par-71. That’s 28 under par for all you non-Calc, ham ‘n eggers out there. The record was achieved at a 4 day Tour event (vs a 5 day event a la Bob Hope Classic). That ain’t too freaking shabby for an old and tubby dude like Calc.
