SAVANNAH, Ga. – Matt Short led the way in open qualifying for this week’s Club Car Championship at The Landings Club, carding a scintillating 8-under 63 at Savannah Quarters CC to secure a tee time this week at The Landings Club (GC).
Short produced a clean card, with eight birdies and no bogeys, to earn his third career Korn Ferry Tour start. The 37-year-old also competed in the PGA TOUR’s 2019 Wells Fargo Championship, making the cut.
Short didn’t play golf until he was 17, and his college basketball coach at Lees-McRae College put him on a golf scholarship because the basketball team was out of scholarships. Now he’ll tee it up in the Peach State as he eyes to make an impact on the Korn Ferry Tour.
