Victoria golfer Cory Renfrew shoots a rare 59

Cory Renfrew was breathing in some rarefied air in the desert on Tuesday.

The Victoria golfer turned in the All-American Golf Tour’s first round of 59, recording the elusive mark that has only been done five times in official events on the prestigious PGA Tour and three times on the fledgling Web.com Tour, when it was previously known as the Nationwide and Nike Tours.
