Russell Henley’s escape to victory, Francesco Molinari’s collapse, Scottie Scheffler’s not-so-exciting performance and two holes in one in Mexico confirmed and disappointed in the third round of the World Wide Technology Championship in Mayakoba.
In Playa del Carmen, in the PGA Tour tournament, Francesco Molinari with a partial of 77 (+6) over a total of 211 (64 70 77, -2) slipped from position 14 to 68. Only one birdie, five bogeys and a double bogey for the Turinese, disappointing.
Third at the end of the first lap, the blue succumbed to the distance. «Hole in one» also for Greyson Sigg, who made the masterpiece on the 10th hole (par 3) from 200 yards (182 meters).
Russell Henley, results
On the El Camaléon GC course (par 71), Russell Henley with another great performance stretched to the top of the standings and, with 191 (63 63 65, -22) shots, 18 holes to go is close to success.
The American, who already has three titles on the PGA Tour, has not won on the circuit since April 2017 (Houston Open). Behind him, six shots away, are his compatriots Will Gordon and Patton Kizzire (winner of this event in 2017), both 2nd with 197 (-16) ahead of Irishman Seamus Power, 4th with 198 (-15) and author of a hole in one at 8 (par 3), from 151 yards (138 meters).
Fresh from the feat in the Bermuda Championship, in Mexico Power continues to give magic. On «moving day,» he attempts no bogey with as many as four birdies and an eagle (on the par-4 11th hole). «Hole in one» also for Greyson Sigg, who made the masterpiece on the 10th hole (par 3) from 200 yards (182 meters).
This is how the «aces» of the tournament rise to three (in the second round the feat of Bryan Harman), with Sigg who is now 7th with 200 (-12) together, among others, the Norwegian Viktor Hovland, king of the competition in 2020 and 2021. Nothing to do for Scottie Scheffler. The world number 2 is 35/o with 204 (-9) and has no chance of winning.
