Here are the golfers with the fewest putts taken in a PGA Tour event over four rounds, 72 holes:

92 putts

  • David Frost, Harbour Town Golf Links, 2005 MCI Heritage
93 putts
  • Kenny Knox, Harbour Town Golf Links, 1989 MCI Heritage Classic
  • Mark Calcavecchia, Forest Oaks Country Club, 2002 Greater Greensboro Chrysler Classic
  • Brian Gay, TPC Blue Monster at Trump Doral, 2013 WGC Cadillac Championship
94 putts
  • George Archer, Harbour Town Golf Links, 1980 Heritage Classic
  • Bob Tway, Harbour Town Golf Links, 1986 MCI Heritage Classic

Note that four of the seven golfers on this list achieved their great putting week on the same golf course, the Harbour Town Golf Links, site of The Heritage.

Also note that none of the golfers listed above won his tournament. In fact the recordholder, Frost, didn't come close to winning. At the 2005 Heritage, where Frost needed only 92 putts, he carded only one round in the 60s and finished tied for 38th. (Frost was a great putter, but the record probably came as a result of missing a lot of greens and chipping up close.)
