Oliver Fisher has carded the first round of 59 in European Tour history on day two of the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura.

The Englishman made 10 birdies and an eagle in his bogey-free 12-under-par effort to at last break the barrier, with 19 players having previously recorded official rounds of 60.

There have been 10 sub-60 rounds recorded on the PGA Tour – with Jim Furyk registering both a 58 and a 59 – the most recent of which came from Brandt Snedeker at the Wyndham Championship last month.
