JACKSON, Miss. — Colombia's Sebastian Munoz blistered a 9-under-par 63 on Saturday, Sept. 21, to surge into the lead through three rounds of the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson.
The low round of the tournament thus far leaves Munoz at 16-under 200, one stroke ahead of third-round playing partner Carlos Ortiz of Mexico (65 on Saturday) at the Country Club of Jackson. The two were teammates at North Texas.
"It was pretty comfortable, I've played with him quite awhile," Munoz said, per Golf Digest. "He made birdies, I made birdies. It was good vibes from the beginning."
South Korea's Byeong Hun An (70), the 36-hole leader, is another stroke back in third. Australia's Cameron Percy (68) is alone in fourth at 13 under, completing a top four who are all seeking their first career PGA Tour victory. Five players are tied for fifth another stroke back.
Defending champion Cameron Champ is tied for 25th at 7 under after shooting a 69. No winner has ever defended his title in the event.
