Want to see the longest putt on the PGA Tour so far this season? It happened at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open

LAS VEGAS — It’s only the third tournament on the PGA Tour’s 2022-23 schedule, but we already have a leader in the clubhouse for longest made putt.

It came in the first round at the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open on the ninth hole, a 563-yard par-5 at TPC Summerlin.

And it came off the putter of a guy who lives in the area, Las Vegas native and resident Taylor Montgomery, who, by the way, is one of five Taylors in the field, along with Taylor Pendrith, Taylor Moore, Nick Taylor and Ben Taylor.

Back to the putt. Taylor reached the green in two but was on the far right edge of the green. Didn’t matter, as 69-feet, 5-inches later, the ball was in the cup.

It’s the longest putt made by any player on Tour this season. The eagle 3 came at a good time, as just three holes before, he carded a dreaded triple-bogey 7 on the sixth hole, part of a first-round 70.

Montgomery made birdie on the ninth, his last of the day, when he returned to the hole Friday, to post a 5-under 66. He walked off the course tied for 17th.
