Golf’s magic number doesn’t seem so magical lately.

On Thursday, Hayden Springer posted the 14th sub-60 round in PGA Tour history Thursday, joining a rapidly expanding list with an eagle-birdie finish in the John Deere Classic for a 12-under 59.

Thirteen of the Tour’s sub-60 rounds have been 59s, and Jim Furyk has the only 58 on the PGA Tour. Furyk is also one of the players to record a 59.
