The best golfers in the world continue to make easy work of Valhalla.

Shane Lowry tied the record for the lowest round in major championship history with a 62 on Saturday at the PGA Championship.

The Irishman narrowly missed a birdie putt from 12 feet on his final hole to set the all-time record.

"That was the most disappointed I've been shooting 62," Lowry said after his round, per SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio. "I think I just hit (the putt) too easy."

It's the fifth 62 in major championship history and the second time it's been accomplished this week after Xander Schauffele did so Thursday. Four of the five 62s at majors have been achieved within the last year.

"I would have liked to been No. 1 with 61," Lowry said. "Us golfers are greedy."

A 62 also represents the course record at Valhalla Golf Club.

The 2019 Open Championship winner, Lowry teed off two hours before the leaders and entered moving day at T29. He sat one stroke off the lead following the completion of his record round.
