Oliver Fisher continued a staggering period for Mizuno on tour – carding the first round of 59 on the European Tour with his MP-18 irons.
There had been 19 rounds of 60 but the sub-60 barrier had yet to be broken in over 680,000 rounds. Fisher’s 59 included ten birdies and an eagle in a bogey-free 12 under par.
“It feels great,” he said “I started off the round great with three straight birdies and then kept it going. I saw that you guys were out here and it was in the back of my mind all day. I’m just pleased that I two-putted there from 40-foot on the last.” Oliver Fisher.
Fisher’s win added to a sequence of wins for Mizuno irons (many by non contracted players) – including consecutive US Open’s (2017/18) and the 2018 PGA Championship.
