Robert Gamez sets course record

Former multiple PGA Tour winner Robert Gamez is having quite the start to the 2010-11 West Florida Golf Tour's winter season.

Gamez currently is atop the Order of Merit and has won three times.

But it was his last victory that is arguably the most impressive.

Gamez played Wednesday's event in blistering fashion - posting 10 birdies, an eagle, a bogey and four pars through 16 holes.

A birdie-birdie finish would equal a golfer's dream - 59.

However, he closed with two pars to settle at 11-under 61 and a six-shot victory.

But Gamez's 61 is a new course record at Waterlefe Golf & River Club, which Ted McAnlis designed in the late 1990s.
