Breaking the course record at North Bellingham Golf Course simply wasn’t enough for Blaine resident Chris Jorgensen. He ended up pushing the record so low, it should stand for a while.

Nearly one month after breaking the course record by a single shot, Jorgensen broke his own record by four strokes, shooting a 13-under 59 on Wednesday, July 15.

Jorgensen was consistent throughout, as he carded 13 birdies and no bogeys during the round played from the blue tees, which measures 6,217 yards. The round was witnessed by playing partners Mike Massey, Matt Ward and John Van Miert.

Jorgensen also holds the course record from the white tees (61) and is tied with Kevin Pom Arleau for the record from the black tees (65).

Before Jorgensen shot a 63 last month, North Bellingham’s old record from the blue tees stood at 64 for about five years, as three golfers carded that score.
