Van der Walt ends up a putt away from making history

Dawie van der Walt was no more than 8 feet away — twice — from a piece of Cox Classic and Tour history.

Had either putt of that length or shorter gone in on the final two holes Sunday, the South African would have joined Jason Gore (2005) in shooting 59 at Champions Run. His 8-foot putt on 17 was for eagle (he made the second putt for birdie), his putt on 18 from 6 feet was for birdie.
