Shook goes deep at World Championship

Kevin Shook blasts a drive at the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship/provided by Shook

Bradenton's Kevin Shook competed in the Re/Max World Long Drive Championship, which aired Christmas Day on ESPN2 via tape delay.

Shook was battling a large field and his own body.

He said he suffered a rib injury during a tournament in Denver, which he won, prior to arriving to the worlds.

Once in Mesquite, Nev., Shook ran roughshod through the opposition en route to a berth in the top 24.

But that lingering injury hurt him during his quarterfinal run that netted him $10,000 and a sixth-place finish in the Open Division.

"It kind of tightened up on me there toward the end of the week at worlds, because it's a whole-long week of hitting and competing so it kind of wears on you," Shook said.
