Oli Fisher: Child Prodigy and the European Tour's Mr. 59

Jun 04, 2019, 12:00 AM
Much had been expected of Oliver Fisher when he made it onto the European Tour as an 18-year-old.
 
An amazing amateur record meant Oli was mentioned in the same breath as some of Britain's best players of the 1980s and 90s, like Sandy Lyle and Nick Faldo.
 
This interview with Oli Fisher explores how he has managed those expectations and dealt with some of the high and low points in his career. But it centres on a day in September 2018, when Fisher achieved what no other player had managed before on the European Tour. 
 
After 46 years, close to half a million rounds and twelve previous scores of 60, Oli became the first player to shoot a European Tour round of 59.
