Sebastian Munoz aiming for calm approach

Columbian Sebastian Munoz insists he is happy to take it steady as he heads into the final round of the Greenbrier Classic with a two-shot lead.

Munoz, 3.00 to win the event, is on course to win his first ever PGA Tour title after maintaining the momentum that he showed during the first round on Thursday.

His sublime 61 was followed up by a round of 67 on Friday and the 24-year-old was still in fine form on Saturday after he fired home a round of 68.

With the rest of the field closing the gap, Munoz kept his composure at Old White TPC in West Virginia, with American Robert Streb is within touching distance after a round of 65 pushed him into second.

Munoz had led by three overnight and endured a frustrating front nine after two birdies were spoiled by two dropped shots.

He then responded by sinking two birdie putts on the back nine and the Bogota-born star admits he will continue to adopt a sensible approach.

He told the PGA Tour: “I’ve had my phone off since Thursday. We’re going to keep it that way.

I’ll try to play boring golf. I try to hit the fairway and hit the greens.

“I’ll try to keep it steady, but you just take what you can get.” While Streb sits alone in second, Xander Schauffele and Jamie Lovemark are tied on 11-under in a share of third.

Davis Love III remains in contention after his 68 put him on 10-under and he will start Sunday’s round in a share of fifth alongside Kelly Kraft and Russell Henley.
