FARSO, Denmark (AP) Tom Lewis flirted with the first 59 in European Tour history Thursday until three late bogeys made him settle for a 9-under 62 and a three-way tie at the Made In Denmark tournament.

Lewis rammed in a 45-foot eagle putt on the par-5 fourth hole to reach 12-under par through 13 holes at Himmerland Golf and Spa Resort. He only needed to play even par over the last five holes for a 59.

But he made bogey on the next hole, and closed with two more bogeys to share the lead with Thomas Pieters and Joakim Lagergren.
