And a piece of history was created at the Hamilton Golf and country club. With a birdie on the 9th hole -- his eighth birdie of the day -- Brandt Snedeker finished the second round at the RBC Canadian Open with a 60, becoming the first player since 1983 to record at least one round of 59, 60 and 61 on the PGA Tour.
