Maria Verchenova Sets Olympic Scoring Record

What do you do when you establish a new scoring record in golf? Well, one thing you can do is celebrate with a cake:

The 2016 Olympic women's golf tournament is over, and Maria Verchenova of Russia didn't come close to winning. But she did become the first golf in Olympic history to post a score of 62. Maria saved the best for last: Her 9-under 62 happened in the final round.

Verchenova started that final round tied for 41st place, but a 62 tends to move a player up the scoreboard. And Maria finished the tournament tied for 16th place with a final score of 4-under par 280.

Her 62 consisted of a 30 on the front nine and a 32 on the back nine. Verchenova had two bogeys but nine birdies ... and a hole-in-one! What a way to finish off golf's return to the Olympics.
