A birdie on the seventh was followed by a miss from six feet on the next, but Snedeker then holed from 20 feet on the ninth to break the magical 60 barrier with an incredible inward half of 27. Simpson has one win this year with six top-10 finishes.

This is the third consecutive year that the PGA Tour has had a sub-60 round.

The 37-year-old carded four birdies in a row from the 13th to reach the turn in 32 and picked up four more shots in the first five holes on the front nine before holing his second shot to the sixth for an eagle two. T24 here past year and T10 in 2015.

"It's going to turn into a birdie-fest like it always does, because the course is in great shape", 2007 victor Brandt Snedeker said Wednesday. "Obviously I'd like to be in a slightly different position ideally, but still have a good chance", said Conners, who spent last week at home visiting friends and enjoying a rare week off.

The 59 broke the course and tournament record of 60 set in 2016 by South Korea's Kim Si-woo.

Snedeker's 59 started off innocently enough.

After that shot, Snedeker said a 59 felt like a real possibility. A field of 68 players, inclusive of eight local sponsor exemptions, will compete for a purse of US$2.5 million.
