Cameron Champ Leads By 4 at Sanderson Farms Championship

Wesley Bryan, one half of the trick shot duo, known as the Bryan Bros (along with brother George), will be making his PGA Tour debut this week at the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Cameron Champ fired a third-day 8-under 64 and will head into Sunday’s finale at the Country Club of Jackson with a four-shot lead.

Champ finished his third day in Jackson, Mississippi with just one bogey offset by nine birdies, including four gains in a five-hole stretch (Nos. 11-15) to secure the top spot at 17-under par.

“Obviously today went great. Just felt like I executed all the shots that I wanted to. Got a few kind of swing tips from my coach last night,” said Champ.

“The range session this morning went smoothly. Just thought I would just keep up with my game plan.

“Like I said, took advantage of the par-5s; made the putts when I needed to.”

Corey Conners matched Champ with a nine-birdie 64 en route to a three-day score of 13 under, good for solo second, one clear of D.J. Trahan (67) and Shawn Stefani (68) who were T3 at 12-under par.

Sam Burns and Martin Laird posted matching 66s and were T5 at 11-under par.
