Matt Wallace had an incredible round at the DP World Tour Championship on Saturday, shooting a 12-under 60 to take a one-shot lead with just 18 holes to play. The English golfer’s exceptional performance was marked by nine straight birdies on the back nine, resulting in a score of 27 and a new record for the lowest round on the DP World Tour this season.
Wallace expressed his excitement about his achievement, saying “What a day, an amazing day. Just tried my hardest to get myself back into the tournament. I’m really happy that I’ve been able to do that. Played great. Again at the end, I didn’t even think there was a 59. Honestly I think it helped me a little bit. I just played nicely coming down the stretch, just keep getting one more if I could and I managed to do that.”
A win on Sunday would give Wallace his first Rolex Series title and cement his place as one of the top golfers on the DP World Tour. Meanwhile, both Viktor Hovland and Tommy Fleetwood matched 66s on Saturday, with Hovland expressing his amazement at Wallace’s achievement. “That’s ridiculous,” he said. “You know, it played easier today, not a lot of wind. Greens were soft. But the greens are very grainy. It’s hard to make putts
