HAYWARD, Calif. - Fabian Gomez shot a 10-under 60 on Friday night in the Web.com Tour's Stonebrae Classic, leaving a 25-foot birdie putt short on the final hole at TPC Stonebrae.

"I wasn't nervous at all," Gomez said. "If it's to win, maybe. I was just trying to make a putt.

"It's the closest I've been and so it's a little disappointing. I had the opportunity to make that putt. It's not very often you find yourself in a spot like to shoot 59. I could have hit a better iron shot from the fairway. I just didn't hit it that good."

The 36-year-old Argentine player had 10 birdies in his bogey-free round. He played the front nine in 7-under 28 and added birdies on Nos. 13, 14 and 17.

"I was definitely aware of it (59), but I was just trying to stay in the moment, hit good shots and make good putts," Gomez said through an interpreter. "I never relaxed. I stayed focused on what I was doing."

Five players have shot 59 on the tour. Notah Begay III did it in the 1998 Dominion Open, Doug Dunakey in the 1998 Miami Valley Open, Jason Gore in the 2005 Cox Classic, Will Wilcox in the 2013 Utah Championship and

Russell Knox in the 2013 Boise Open.

Gomez had a 14-under 126 total for a one-stroke lead over Blayne Barber.

Barber had a 64.
