JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — After Kevin Streelman opened the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 9-under 63 on Thursday, he and several other players said it would take 20 under or better to win.
Chris Kirk isn’t into predictions, but he does know what he’ll need to do Sunday for his fifth PGA Tour title and second in the event.
“I’ve tried to predict scores before, and I’ve never done a very good job of it, so I’ve kind of quit,” said Kirk, the highest-ranked player in the field. “I’m just going to go out and stay very aggressive, and I’ll try to make as many birdies as I can, that’s for sure.”
Kirk had eight birdies in a 7-under 65 to share the third-round lead with Luke List.
List also shot 65 to match Kirk at 14 under at the Country Club of Jackson.
