Justin became the youngest player in PGA TOUR history to break 60, sinking a 15 foot putt for Eagle on the last, to card -11 under par 59, with a bogey on the card;
“It means a lot. Any time you’re in history in any sport or whatever you’re doing, it’s a good thing.”
“I wasn’t thinking a lot. I was just really more focused on trying to make the putt.”
“Obviously I knew what it meant if I made it, and that was the first time I had a putt at 59.
“I was like, well, who knows when this is going to happen again, I may as well try and knock it in. I hit a great putt.”
“I was calm, I wasn’t too nervous over the putt.”
“So I need to get ready to get my mind ready and my game, try to keep it sharp to try to post another good one tomorrow.”
