Via the official site:
The Pebble Beach Golf Links have been around for 99 years, hosting five U.S. Opens and a PGA Championship over that time period, while establishing a reputation as one of the world’s premier golf courses.
After today’s second round of the Carmel Cup, no one has ever turned in a better score at Pebble Beach than Texas Tech’s Hurly Long.
Long fired a remarkable 11-under 61 to lead the way on what was a memorable record-breaking day for the No. 22 Texas Tech men’s golf team.
Long not only carded 10 birdies to just one bogey on Saturday, he also logged an eagle on the par-5 sixth. His 61 is also tied for the lowest individual round in Tech history with Finley Ewing, who posted a 61 at the 2012 Royal Oaks International. Long, now -14 for the tournament, carries the overall individual lead into the final round.
