Oliver Fisher made history here in Vilamoura 2018 shooting 59 for a European Tour record, The Englishman broke the barrier in the second round of the Portugal Masters on Friday, carding ten birdies and an eagle in a stunning 12 under par bogey-free effort that will go down in European Tour folklore and Tom Lewis was the first to renew the title, producing the biggest 54-hole comeback of the season to win the Portugal Masters for the second time at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course.
The Englishman fired an opening 72 on Thursday to sit nine shots behind first-round leader Lucas Herbert but rounds of 63 and 61 meant he was just two behind the Australian heading into the final round in Vilamoura.
Lucas Herbert recorded his best-ever 54-hole score on the European Tour to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Portugal Masters.
The Australian carded a 64 to get to 19 under at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course and lead the way from England’s Tom Lewis, who signed for his lowest ever European Tour round with a stunning 61.
Victoria golf course, designed by the Legendary player Aronld Palmers in 2004, proves an exceptional challenge for even the best golfer, It is called “Cascatas Victória” (Victoria Falls) honouring the 12 waterfalls inside the several lakes along the right hand side of the fairway, together with some bunkers it is often also described as the “crown jewel” with its mixture of water hazards and bunkers to conquer, a true challenge in its own right. The Victoria golf course has the most varied greens, both in size as in form, 5.5 hectares of well placed bunkers, white sand and some with artistic shapes, such as the one at 8th hole, a giant octopus-shaped, in some of the bunkers, the sand spreads down all the way to the lakes, a typical Palmer´s signature.
The thrill of this enthralling tournament still lingers in the air, so choose Vilamoura where legends are made and enjoy a fantastic golfing holiday to remember.
