In 1994, during a CARPET CAPITAL COLLEGIATE TOURNAMENT record tieing round of 64, Kevin Kemp of Wake Forest scored 3 on ten holes. They came on holes 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13, 15 and 16. For the round, he made 11 pars, 6 birdies and one eagle.
Tim Clark of North Carolina State recorded birdies on 5 consecutive holes during the first round of 1996. Beginning on hole 12 and ending on hole 16, his string helped forge a round of 69(32 on the back nine).
The back nine is easier, right? In the 2nd round of 2008 Seamus Power from East Tennessee State birdied 2, 4, 5, 6, and 7 on the front to score 31. On the back there came bogeys on all the even numbered holes for 41. There are many ways to shoot even par!
3,5,4,3,3,3,3,2,4=30. Those are Troy Matteson's numbers on the front nine. The Georgia Tech senior shattered the old front nine mark of 32, previously held by a host of players, on the way to tieing the tournament record round of 64. In the third round of 2005, Matt Every of Florida tied the record. He reversed Troy's scores on holes one and three and duplicated the other seven!
DEUCES WILD!!! In the first round of 2016 Phillip Knowles of North Florida became the 23rd player to record 3 2's in the same round. His feat was accomplished on holes 8, 11 and 13. Just to prove that was no fluke, he birdied the same three holes in round 2 to become the 24th. He only managed one duece in the third round, but it came on hole 11, making him the first player to birdie 11 in all three rounds. By making par on all the other par 3's, he played the 12 holes in 29 strokes for the week. In the first round or 2008 Mississippi's Joe David had back-to-back twos on holes 7 (354 yard par 4) and 8 (243 yard par 3. Also, in the second round of 2008 Billy Horschel from Florida only made two deuces, but they came on holes 10 and 18, both par fours. He is the 10th player to have two eagles in the same round, but the first to record both on par four holes.
Favorite hole? Tennessees Derrick Centers will tell you its the twelfth. In the spring of 1999 he toured the hole in five under par. 3-4-3=10. Thats the same as a free pass in the third round.
In the first round of 2005 Georgia State's Joel Sjoholm made 4 bogeys and a double in a front nine 40. Five birdies and an eagle on the back nine gave him a back nine record 29. Talk about settling down!!
