Austin’s Wes Short Jr. played the last ten holes in eight under par, finishing birdie, birdie, eagle, to win the Quebec City Champions Tour title. His closing 64 and eagle on the last hole was good enough for a one shot victory over Scott Dunlap.
As the Austin golfing public watched the closing holes of the champions tour event and witnessed Short make a long birdie putt on 16 to pull into a tie for the lead and then make a fifteen footer on 17 to temporarily move into the lead, things were getting very interesting.
Meanwhile Scott Dunlap had hit his second shot close to the hole on the par five 18th. After he made his eagle putt, Short was one shot back with the 18th to play.
He managed to hit the fairway off the tee and then after waiting for the green to clear, hit a hybrid to within eight feet of the cup. All he had to do was make the putt to win the championship.
Nervous Austin fans watched as he calmly rolled in the putt and claimed the victory. Pretty exciting stuff for Austin Golf fans and those who know the trials and tribulations that Short has endured to get into the winners circle.
Way to go Wes… we are so happy for you…
