Gene Sauers, the Champions Tour player who tried to convince himself and others he couldn’t putt, is tied for the lead with Paul Goydos, and Kenny Perry at the 3M Championship. Sauers carded rounds of 66 & 64 thus far.

Sauers was forced to drop a putt on the 18th in round-2, to push himself to the top of the leader board, while Perry was right behind him already at 14-under par.

Gene putted lights-out in round-2. He made 8 birdies, without making a bogey in the round, not bad for a guy who said his putter has held him back.

It’s not going to be easy to capture a win at the TPC Twin Cities, in Blaine,  MN. Goydos was on fire in round-2, carding a 12-under par 60 in the second round.

Perry was in good potion, to try to make eagle on the 18th for sole possession of the lead, but his approach shot to the green was long. He had to take a drop from the stands, and then he hit his wedge shot too high on the face and was still short of the green after his third shot.

He hit another chip that gave him the chance to save par, and he was able to convert the putt to stay at 14-under par, for a share of the lead.

If Sauers can continue to putt the way he has this week, we are all in for some exciting golf. Goydos can’t possibly be as hot in round-3 as he was in round-2. Firing a 12-under par round of 60, is a difficult thing to follow.

All three players at the top of the leader-board, are going to have to continue to play well, if they want the win. There are two guys right behind and 13-under par, and a couple of guys at 12-under including Steve Stricker who can putt well as we all know.

Stay tuned folks, this one could come down to who ever wants it the most!!!!
