(AP) SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. - Wes Short Jr. earned one of five Champions Tour cards for next season in his first attempt at the 50-and-older circuit.

Short turns 50 on Dec. 4. He closed with 68 to tie the Champions Tour Q-school record at 20-under 264. He earned $30,000 for his five-shot victory over Mike Reid and Jim Rutledge of Canada. Rutledge started the final round outside the top 12 and closed with a 65 in rainy conditions at the TPC Scottsdale to earn his card.

The final two spots were decided in a playoff Saturday morning because of the rain.

Scott Dunlap and Jeff Hart each made par on the first playoff hole to get full exempt status for 2014 season.
