Kite’s USGA’s record 9 hole score

7/13/12 Tom Kite, using the grooved putter grip, shot USGA record 28 on the front nine yesterday at USGA Senior Open Championship. He was 7 under par through 16 hole and made double boggie on 17 and finished with tournament leading score of 65. He had amazing low 1.39 putts per green hit in regulation.

I quote a press release “Jacobsen (Peter) marveled at Kite’s putting.

“Tom putted as well with the long putter today as I’ve seen him in five or six years he’s used that putter,” Jacobsen said. “He was confident. He stepped up to every putt, boom, and he was very assertive. He had great speed.”
