PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Bob Estes feels young for his age.
“I’m starting to play the best golf I’ve ever played,” said Estes, a four-time PGA Tour winner. “I’ve kept myself young. I’m a young 46. Training, diet, sleep, chiropractor, no kids yet.”
Estes’ new swing is even younger. It’s less than a year old. He used it to post a 7-under-par 65 Sunday at the TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course. It was his lowest round in 21 years at The Players Championship by two shots.
Estes and David Toms both posted 65s after morning starts, showing there are some low scores to be had despite Sunday’s swirling winds.
Estes visited Jim Flick last fall and overhauled his swing. Tired of his weak-gripped fades, Estes strengthened his grip with Flick and set out to straighten his ball flight. Estes was T-16 Sunday when he signed his scorecard, which, if it holds up, would be his best finish at The Players.
