UNT grad Sebastian Munoz blazes to AT&T Byron Nelson lead with 12-below opening spherical

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

Winners and losers of MLB’s opening weekend: Alex Bregman, Mets off to hot starts; Brewers, D-Backs struggle

The first weekend of Major League Baseball’s 2022 season is in the books. While best practices suggest the smart way to approach the game is with patience and discipline, we here like to lean into the entertainment aspect now and then. 

Consider, for example, this annual piece, in which we name winners and losers from the season’s first weekend. Will anyone remember who started hot (or cold) in a few weeks, let alone in October?

Now, let’s get toit.

Winner: New-look Mets

Sure, the Mets played the Nationals, but you can only play the schedule you’re given. The important thing is the Mets took care of business against a weaker foe, winning the first three games of a four-game set before the bullpen cost them Sunday’s affair. Offseason additions paved the way: Starling Marte, Mark Canha and Eduardo Escobar combined for 13 hits while Max Scherzer and Chris Bassitt struck out 14 batters versus six hits and two walks in 12 innings of work. The Mets will see the Phillies next in what should be a more competitive and entertaining series between National League East foes.

Milwaukee remains the overwhelming favorite in the NL Central. That doesn’t mean this weekend’s series versus the Cubs was easy to stomach for Brewers fans, who had to watch their club lose a one-run game on Opening Day then get blown out on Saturday. Thankfully, the Brew Crew edged the Cubs for their first win on Sunday. The immediate road will get easier for the Brewers, who will conclude a brief road trip with three games in Baltimore against the Orioles.

The Yankees schedule had them opening with seven consecutive games at
