Professional golfer and Victory Ranch member Tony Finau is no stranger to setting new records — and this summer has been no exception. On July 10, the Utah native broke his own course record for a round while playing right here at the Ranch. The veteran golfer — who opted to spend time on the green in Park City in lieu of competing in the PGA Tour event — bested his own personal record when he shot his second-ever round under 60. Finau’s record round was three strokes better than his previous Victory Ranch record of 62.
“Shooting in the 50s is rare and I’ll take em when I can get em,” Finau captioned an Instagram Story post. “Side note to that round. I played the ball as it lies in every situation and finished everything.” Finau also reportedly recorded a clubhead speed of 206 miles per hour on a swing during a round at the Park City course.
Designed by Rees Jones, Victory Ranch’s 18-hole golf course is a meandering masterpiece characterized by bent grass greens and fairways, bluegrass and 360-degree panoramic views from the 17th hole, making it the perfect place to play a leisurely round or set a new personal record. It has been rated among the best courses in the state by Golf Digest, and it’s certainly likely that Finau can agree.
