In a PGA Tour competition, the greatest score for one round of golf is 58. That score has only been posted once, and it was by Jim Furyk. Furyk set an all-time round record of 58 in the final round of the 2016 Travelers Championship at TPC River Highlands in Connecticut. He went on to win that tournament.

The best single-round score in amateur golf history is 60, done nine times. The last time someone accomplished this feat was in 2012 when Jhonattan Vegas did it in the second round of the Brasil Open. This past January 11, 2019, Justin Thomas became the first player to shoot a 61 in a major when he did so at the 2019 PGA Championship.
The lowest round of golf scored with an entire set of clubs is 62, which is held by several players. It was first set by Bobby Jones in 1904 and then again by Walter Hagen in 1911. Hagen also holds the record for the fastest round of golf, playing 33 holes in just over three hours at the 1913 Chicago Tribune World's Fair Tournament. He shot that amazing score of 142.
