It might be a record. It is certainly the kind of achievement that deserves recognition.  

Noted teacher and timeless professional Bob Toski shot a routine 73 over the weekend at Broken Sound Country Club in Boca Raton, Fla.: 35-38 from just under 6,500  yards.  

What makes the feat noteworthy is the fact that Toski is 86 years old. He doesn't know if 13 shots under your age is a record, and he doesn't care. "I don't play for records," Toski said. "Now, I'm playing customer golf and giving golf lessons when I'm out there. But I still love it and can still get it around pretty well."  

 Toski was the leading money winner on tour in 1954 and was the first living professional inducted into the World Golf Teachers Hall of Fame.
