  • Fisher is sprayed with champagne by Matt Wallace as he speaks to Sky Sports Golf

The Englishman became the first player in the tour's history to post a sub-60 round, firing a 12-under 59 at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Club to set the clubhouse target.

Oliver Fisher's historic sub-60 round on Friday left him tied for first place with Eddie Pepperell and Lucas Herbert on day two of the Portugal Masters.

Incredibly, 19 golfers had shot 60 on the European Tour, but they all failed to hit the magic number.

"It feels great", Fisher said as he got doused with champagne as he completed his round.

Fisher began the day eight strokes off the pace but quickly moved up the leaderboard after following birdies over the first three holes with a hole-out eagle from the bunker at the par-five fifth.

He birdied the 10th and 11th and when he got on the green at the par-five 12th in two and made a third birdie in a row, he was 10 under for the day.

The 30-year-old got up and down from the side of the driveable par-four 15th for another birdie but needed to hole a 20-footer to save par at the par-three next after leaving his tee shot a long way from the hole. I started great and kept it going. I'm just pleased that I two-putted there from 40-foot on the last. It's very different to two years ago when I had to fight to keep my card. I had that in the back of my mind, thinking, 'Do you know what?

"It was fun, I tried to enjoy it and thankfully I got over the line".

Fisher now shares the clubhouse lead with Lucas Herbert, who shot a second-round 4-under 67, but golfers are still on the course.
