Check out this 59 with the most outrageous back nine you’ll ever see
When Nick Marsh made the turn in 31 on the Laranjal course at Quinta do Lago in Portugal, he will have felt like he was on for a good score.
The next two hours were beyond anything he could have possibly imagined.
The Yorkshire pro, who plays out of Fixby, came home in a frankly absurd 28 to hit that magic number of 59, a run that featured eight threes – including two eagles – and a four.
Let’s just take a moment to appreciate the scorecard…
Birdie, birdie, par, eagle, birdie, birdie, par, birdie, eagle for a 9-under back nine. Ludicrous. And the front nine wasn’t bad either!
Nick’s stunning Saturday at the Churchill Specialist Contracting Quinta Do Lago Pro-Am, run by Golfing Days, was sandwiched by rounds of 72 over the Vale Do Lobo course and 69 on Quinta North, and his 124 Stableford points were enough for a runner-up finish behind Cavendish’s George Bloor and £1,500 in prize money, while his team finished fourth.
NCG has reached out to Nick for comment – but he’s currently on the golf course. (Would you expect anything less?) We’ll bring you more from Nick when he’s back in.
