Ishikawa in action.

Japanese Teen Sensation Ryo Ishikawa posted a record setting 12 under par 58 to win The Crowns Championship on the Japan PGA Tour. He won $255,000 for his performance. He ran off 12 birdies in his final round on the 6,545 yard Nagoya Golf Course to win by five shots over Japan’s Hiroyuki Fujita at 13 under 267. He put up rounds of 68-70-71 the first three rounds to start the final day six shots back of the leader, Shigeki Maruyama. His final round score of 58 is the lowest ever recorded on any major tour in the world and just serves to show how much of a force the 18 year old phenom will be in the coming years. According to Golfweek, “I got off to a good start for the first time in four rounds, so I told myself not to give up for the title until the end,” Ishikawa said. “To my surprise, I found myself making this many birdies. I was in a calm mental state for all 58 strokes.”
