ENDICOTT, N.Y. (AP) - Kevin Sutherland has shot the first 59 in Champions Tour history.

The 50-year-old Sutherland had a chance to become the first player to card a 58 in a PGA Tour-sanctioned event with a par on No. 18, but made his only bogey of the day. His par putt from about 6 feet slid just past the hole Saturday at the Dick's Sporting Goods Open.

Sutherland opened with seven birdies and an eagle on the first eight holes. He had 12 birdies overall, including three straight coming into No. 18 to set up the chance for a 58.

He settled for a 13-under 59, after shooting 71 in Friday's first round in his third Champions Tour event.

Sutherland owns one career PGA Tour title, winning the 2002 Match Play Championship.

Six players have shot a 59 on the PGA Tour.
