GOLF ROUNDUP: Martin shoots record 62
AVONDALE, La. (AP) — Ben Martin treated a tiny gallery to a course-record round, shooting a 10-under 62 in the first round of the Zurich Classic. Martin’s 10th birdie was his most spectacular shot in a round full of them as he chipped in from 55 feet on the par-3 17th hole.
That came a hole after the 26-year-old former Clemson player hit the flag on a chip from behind the green.
