Luke Schniederjans had himself a round to remember on Wednesday.
During the second round of the Mimosa Challenge, a GPro Tour event at Mimosa Hills Golf Club, Schniederjans went low, dissecting the Donald Ross-designed course in Morganton, North Carolina to the tune of 11-under 59. The 2020 Georgia Tech graduate made birdie on every hole on the front nine except for the par-4 fourth, making the turn at 8-under 27.
The three-time All-ACC player then cooled off with pars on Nos. 10-14 before another birdie streak on holes 15-17. A par on No. 18 sealed the deal for the sub-60 round. Eleven birdies. Seven pars. One incredible round.
The best part? Schniederjans thought he only shot 60.

Hey how’d you play today? “66. Not bad.” Were you low in your group? “Uhh lost by 7.” Luke shot 59…and when I said to him “hey that was 59 right,” he thought it was 60. He thought it was par 71. https://t.co/1XzngLmhtu
