Chad Collins shot a sizzling nine-under 27 (that was really weird to type) on his first nine in the second round of this week’s Web.com Tour event, the Utah Championship. Collins, who teed off no. 10, got to 11-under through 12 holes before cooling off and jumping on the par train.

Par at Willow Creek CC is 71, so with two holes to play, he needs a birdie to post golf’s magic number: 59.

It’s past midnight here in Scotland and I have a 5:30am wake-up call, so I can’t continue to refresh the tournament’s leaderboard every 30 seconds. I’ll check back to update the results in the morning, but I have a feeling he’s going to come up just short. 60 isn’t so shabby, though!

[*Update: Collins wasn’t able to convert birdie on the 18th and posted an 11-under 60. So close, but still, impressive effort.]
