MCKINNEY – Sebastian Munoz entered this week’s AT&T Byron Nelson as the co-holder of the “best round of the PGA Tour this season” title, thanks to his 10-underneath spherical of 60 at the RSM Vintage in November.
Right after Thursday’s history-breaking opening round at TPC Craig Ranch, he no lengthier has to share that title.
Munoz, a University of North Texas graduate and former Convention United states of america Championship match winner, shot a 12-below round of 60 early on Thursday. The spherical gained him the TPC Craig Ranch study course record, tied him for the Nelson match document and set him by itself at the top for the finest round of the 2021-22 PGA Tour year.
“It’s a great sensation whenever every little thing is clicking, hitting the tee shots, ball is coming out in the window that you imagined, the putts,” Munoz stated. “When all the things is heading, it’s just continue to be out of the way and just sort of let it occur.”
The Colombian-born Munoz received off to a good start on Thursday early morning, but the spherical wasn’t anything resembling a record-breaking one particular in the early levels. Soon after a bogey at No. 8 thanks to an errant tee shot that compelled him to acquire an unplayable, Munoz was just -2 by way of eight holes. But starting up at the par-5 9th with an eagle, Munoz completed his spherical with a extend of 10 holes where by he played -10, which includes a study course-file 28 on the back 9.
Munoz truly had a prospect to sign up for the elusive 59 club when he stepped to the tee box at No. 18. With an eagle, the 2019 Sanderson Farms Championship would have become just the 12th player in PGA Tour background
