Muskegon pro flirts with a “perfect game” of golf, shoots – get this – 55!

In 2012, Andrew Ruthkoski set the record at Oak Ridge Golf Club in Muskegon, scoring 11-under 61.

Sunday evening, while playing the unofficial Twilight round in his home court with his two twin daughters, he matched 11 under–through nine holes. By the time he finished, Rothkowski had shot the most unimaginable point: 17 under 55.

seriously. There were four witnesses.

Yes, it was a good time,” Rothkowski said with a laugh over the phone this week.

Ruthkoski, 39, a professional golfer from Muskegon, shooting a 55 between a strong showing at the Michigan Open and the preliminaries this week for the PGA Tour’s John Deere Classic, took The News through the tour, hole after hole, which featured four Eagles (up front the front nine alone) and nine birds in a track were playing at just over 6,000 yards from the rear tees.
