  • Munoz claims lead at Sanderson Farms Championship Munoz claims lead at Sanderson Farms Championship

    Sebastian Munoz climbed to the top of the Sanderson Farms Championship leaderboard with a nine-under-par 63 in the third round.

    Munoz was flawless as the Colombian golfer earned a one-stroke lead heading into the final round of the PGA Tour tournament in Jackson, Mississippi on Saturday.

    A one-time Web.com winner in 2016, Munoz had nine birdies without dropping a shot to improve to 16 under through 54 holes at the Country Club of Jackson.

    Munoz birdied his first three holes and four of his opening five to set the tone on the penultimate day – the 26-year-old ending the round ahead of Mexico's Carlos Ortiz (65).

    Overnight leader Byeong Hun An dropped down to third and two shots off the pace following his two-under-par 70.

    An entered the round with a two-stroke advantage on the back of successive 66s but the South Korean was unable to maintain his charge.

    A pair of birdies during his final three holes saw An close out the round at 14 under, one shot clear of Cameron Percy (68).

    Meanwhile, Dominic Bozzelli (67), Im Sung-jae (67), Harris English (68), J.T. Poston (70) and George McNeill (70) are tied for fifth at 12 under.

    As for defending champion Cameron Champ, he is nine shots off the pace following his 69.

  • Dramatic finish sees Rahm and Willett neck and neck at Wentworth Dramatic finish sees Rahm and Willett neck and neck at Wentworth

    Jon Rahm made a remarkable recovery at Wentworth's 18th hole on Saturday to retain a share of the BMW PGA Championship lead alongside Danny Willett.

    An eagle at the last on Friday had seen Rahm join Willett at the top of the leaderboard through two rounds, but it appeared the same hole would prove his undoing 24 hours later.

    Rahm, leading by a single stroke heading to the par-five 18th, sent an awful drive towards the bushes and looked to be facing a first double-bogey of the week.

    The Spaniard's problems were compounded by Englishman Willett's proficiency at the same hole, lining up a birdie putt from four feet.

    Willett executed the putt to move to 15 under for the week, but Rahm, having made the green with his fourth shot, sank a stunning effort to save par.

    The duo held a three-shot joint-lead, with Indian Shubhankar Sharma having surged into contention with nine birdies before a bogey at the last left him on 12 under with a 66.

    Justin Rose also dropped a shot at the last to join Sharma, having made an eagle at the 17th, with Christiaan Bezuidenhout the third man at the same score.

    Elsewhere, Rory McIlroy had been made to work hard to make the cut on Friday following a dismal opening-round 76, but he was back on form as the weekend began.

    A fine 65 left the world number two on six under for the week, low enough to provoke a sliver of optimism that an unlikely title challenge might still be on the cards.

    McIlroy, who was hoping for Rahm and Willett to slump, told Sky Sports: "I've done what I can and shot a good score.

    "If I go out [on Sunday] and shoot something similar, I don't know if it's going to be quite good enough but at least I've given myself something to hope for. That's a nice thing."

    American Patrick Reed appeared to be in contention after signing for a 67 to reach nine under, while Italian Francesco Molinari was a shot further back.

    The 18th did not cause Englishman Ross Fisher as much trouble as it had others, as he achieved a brilliant albatross to finish his third round - earning a new BMW for the feat.

  • An fires another 66 to edge clear at Sanderson Farms Championship An fires another 66 to edge clear at Sanderson Farms Championship

    Byeong Hun An carded another six-under 66 to open up a two-stroke lead as the second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship was suspended.

    The South Korean continued his fine start at the Country Club of Jackson on Friday, moving into 12 under after his second straight 66.

    An started his round with four consecutive birdies before finding water to bogey the par-five fifth.

    The 28-year-old recovered with back-to-back birdies at eight and nine before picking up another shot at the 17th.

    An holds a two-shot lead over J.T. Poston (70), George McNeill (67), Scottie Scheffler (66) and Tom Hoge (70).

    Hoge and Scheffler are coming off strong showings at the Greenbrier Classic, where they finished second and tied for seventh respectively.

    Inclement weather led to a delay on the opening day and darkness meant 57 players were unable to finish their second rounds.

    Cameron Percy is the best-placed of those yet to get through 36 holes, sitting at nine under through 11 and in outright sixth.

    Carlos Ortiz (71) and Harris English (71) are tied for seventh at eight under, alongside Seamus Power, who is through 11.

    Joaquin Niemann, the 20-year-old Chilean who won the Greenbrier Classic, is back at four under through 16 holes in his second round.
