2022 AT&T Byron Nelson leaderboard: Jordan Spieth’s 64 in Round 3 puts him behind leader Sebastian Munoz

McKINNEY, Texas (AP) – Sebastian Munoz will be another local “boy” at the Byron Nelson final.

It is interesting to note that the Colombian now calls the Dallas region home and has taken the lead after all three competitions.

Munoz shot 6-under 66 on Saturday and was 21 years old, hitting the front line of his favorite Jordan Spieth, who still wants to excel in the event he took part in the final race as a 16-year-old in high school. 2010. Spieth shot at 64.

Joaquin Niemann will be the third player in the final team on Sunday, the only third to score in another 65th draw. Thomas (64).

Spieth is a year younger than Munoz aged 28 but has three senior players in 13 career successes after playing at the University of Texas. Munoz, who played in college near North Texas, has been sidelined for 2 1/2 years on his only PGA Tour victory.

“In addition to the success in Bogota, Colombia, I have never been loved anywhere else,” Munoz said. “So it’s a very familiar place. Jordan is, of course, a golden guy here, so everyone loves it very much. I have good friends with him, so it will be a lot of fun tomorrow.”

Spieth had never been through two holes without a bird before he was a bogey at the age of 15. He had had some downsides and was on the verge of winning a race that he wanted to win badly after an amazing PGA Tour race as an amateur 12 years ago.

Besides that, he is one of the 30 world champions playing this week preparing for next week’s PGA Championships in Southern Hills in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

“So having the chance to win the event, this will be the best I had on Sunday,” Spieth said. “I did a good job without pushing myself too much, I just wanted to get into arguments and see what needs to be fixed next week. But there is no better preparation for the big one than winning last week.”

Speith was ninth last season last year at TPC Craig Ranch, a fine finish for Nelson.

Munoz made a 39-foot birdie putt on the par-4 second hole and stopped a long shot of about 4 in six.

Playing with another Texan at Ryan Palmer, Munoz got into trouble with Palmer on the 4th 16th.

After Palmer made his way into the field, Munoz went to the left playing ball from the field with the ball at his feet. He swung to the ground with his club after leaving the chip 30 feet away and ended up with his only bogey.

Palmer, a double shot at the time after five consecutive birds, had to fall into a deep crisis, needed two shots to get out and put three double-bogey.

A West Texas native and Dallas native who is looking for his first victory since 2010, Palmer shot 70 and was 17 years old on the ground with defending champion KH Lee (67) and Charl Schwartzel winning 2011 Masters (68).

Spieth pulled short even with 18-year-old Munoz down with five birds in six holes before the Colombian hit his way at 9 and 10 within 5 feet for the birds that kept him in front.

Hahn missed the last two cuts when he played Nelson after finishing third in 2017, last year at the TPC Four Seasons in another area of ​​Dallas, Irving.

The move to McKinney, about 30 miles north of the city, came after Nelson played twice at Trinity Forest south of Dallas, and then stopped the plague before moving on.

Rick Gehman and Greg DuCharme interrupted the third quarter Saturday from TPC Craig Ranch. Follow & listen to The First Cut on Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

Winner of the two PGA Tour tours, Hahn shot five of the last nine holes in the front nine and began to stretch 5-down on four holes and hit his second shot to 7 feet par-5 12.

“I feel like it was just an easy game for me, but a shot for everyone, 9-, 10-down, someone lives every day,” said Hahn, who missed 10 wounds this season. “So I just heard, ‘Why not me?’

Masters champion Scottie Scheffler, who won three times in the second round of the race to shoot out to chase Sunday, listed the birds in 65 divisions that left him at age 16.

The Dallas-born midfielder fired four shots in the front five and three in the back row, but his bogey round ended with a disappointing 5th 18th shot.

“I’ve never seen the ball go so far, which is frustrating because you have to make putts to score fewer goals,” Scheffler said. “I fought my way back to the race, but I need a burner tomorrow if I want to make a noise.”

Davis Riley fired 64 and was arrested by Scheffler and Beau Hossler (67).

Two elderly travelers disappeared as a result of a dispute with the 2-over 74s. David Skinns, 40, from England, began the day he was arrested to lead the charge against Munoz and Palmer, and 33-year-old American Justin Lower, who just fired.
