Wes Short Jr. of Austin recently shot 62 in the final round of the 3M Championship in Twin Cities. His bogey free round included ten birdies. He birdied 3,5,6,7, 10, 12, 13, 15, 17 and 18 for 32-30=62.
He commented that he made some putts. He recently went to a longer putter so he could stand up straighter and take some pressure off his back. After having a difficult time with his back in the previous Champions Tour Event, that would certainly make sense.
He commented that he worked with his instructor Bruce Smith for two days on getting the club more in front of him, primarily in the backswing, and is becoming more familiar with the feeling of swinging the club in this fashion. That was evidenced by his good play last week.
His back has been better over the last few competitive rounds and he is pain free at the moment. His good play continued today as he recorded 63 at Roy Kizer.
We congratulate Wes on his good play and are pulling for him.
