Jim Furyk recorded the lowest round in PGA Tour history on Sunday as he signed for a stunning 58 at the Travelers Championship.

The American came into the event as one of only six men to have posted a sub-60 total over 18 holes on the United States' top tour after his 59 at the 2013 BMW Championship, and recorded an eagle and 10 birdies to lower that mark by one at TPC River Highlands.

The feat comes just 11 days after Germany's Stephan Jaeger shot a 58 at the Ellie Mae Classic on the Tour - the PGA's second tier - the first time it had ever been achieved in a sanctioned event on the Tour, PGA Tour, European Tour or Champions Tour.
