Jamie Kureluk is hardly a household name, and somehow I think what he did at the RBC Insurance Alberta Open Championship will do little to change that. But it is remarkable. Kureluk, an assistant pro at a club in Calgary and a former Canadian Tour player, had one of the great back nines the game has ever witnessed yesterday.
Of note, the lowest nine-hole score on the PGA Tour is 26, by Corey Pavin. I can’t say I’ve ever seen 11-under par on a nine — ever. And ten straight holes at 12-under par has to be some sort of record. You can find Kureluk’s website here. Note that the field for this event is strong, and includes a number of standout Canadian Tour players.
