Recent Broughton High graduate Richard Fountain shot a 12-under-par 59 at Carolina Country Club, tying a club record held by former Broughton star and Wake Forest University all-America Webb Simpson.
Fountain had 11 birdies, one bogey and an eagle on No. 10.
“I have never experienced anything like it,” Fountain said.
Simpson, who has earned $1.8 million on the PGA tour in the past two years, called Fountain soon after he finished his record-tying round.
