PGA Tour's Joel Dahmen Shoots 58 on Home Course; Chicago Cubs' Ian Happ Cards 69

JOEL DAHMEN WAS "ONLY" 2 UNDER through seven holes. Then the PGA Tour pro went crazy. That is, 12-under-for-the-next-11-holes crazy.

Dahmen's 58 included a 26 on the second nine. The University of Washington product set a new course record at Mesa Country Club in Arizona. (Good luck trying to break it.)

"That was FUN!" tweeted Dahmen, also seen with his five golf partners in a photo. (As Alex Myers noted for Golf Digest, not much evidence of social distancing.)

Chicago Cubs infielder Ian Happ also has game, sporting a two handicap. Happ turned in a tidy 69.

That's solid on any day, but it might not have felt quite as good on a day when his golf-pro buddy bettered him by 11.

Dahmen is playing in this week's Scottsdale AZ Open, a 54-hole event. He opened with a 65.
