PERRY SHOOTS 12-UNDER 60 FOR LEAD IN CHAMPIONS TOUR EVENT
Across the Atlantic Ocean last weekend, Kenny Perry was already looking ahead to this weekend’s 3M Championship. With all his accomplishments at the TPC Twin Cities, who could blame him?
Perry shot a 12-underpar 60 on Saturday and leads the PGA Tour Champions event by five shots over Glen Day.
From 212 yards on No. 18, he missed shooting 59 by inches.
“I hit the prettiest 5iron I could ever hit. When I heard everybody yell really loud I knew it was close,” Perry said. The ball barely scooted by on the right, leaving an 8-foot putt for eagle.
His two-round score of 126 is a tournament record.
“I’m really blown away by my round today. That’s a confidence builder; it tells me I still can do it and I’m not quite washed up yet,” Perry said.
He had shoulder surgery late last year and called this season “erratic” with two top-10 finishes in nine previous events.
