Paramus - An obscure record was set at the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club earlier this month.

Seven players had all four rounds in the 60s, led by champion Brooks Koepka.

The others were Stewart Cink, Jon Rahm, Francesco Molinari, Justin Thomas, Justin Rose and Webb Simpson.

The previous record was five players with all four rounds in the 60s at Baltusrol in 2016, Valhalla in 2014 and Riviera in 1995.

Koepka and Charl Schwartzel each shot 63 in the second round. That extended the streak to four consecutive years when at least one player shot 63 or better in the majors.

Tommy Fleetwood also had a 63 at the US Open, so that makes 2018 the fourth time there were at least three rounds of 63 in the same year.

The other years were 1980 (Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf at the US Open, Isao Aoki at the British); 1993 (Nick Faldo and Payne Stewart at the British, Vijay Singh at the PGA); and 2016 (Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson at the British, Robert Streb at the PGA).

Tiger Woods also got in on the act.

His 64 in the final round at Bellerive tied for low score of the round.

The last time no one had a lower score than Woods in one round at a major was in the 2010 US Open at Pebble Beach, where he and Dustin Johnson each shot 66 on Saturday.
