The third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson had mixed fortunes for national golfers. At TPC Craig Ranch, Joaquin Niemann kept up his great pace on the grass and was able to stay on top fighting for the podium of the event, posting a -19 under par card.

Meanwhile, Mito Pereira’s performance, which on the second day had been very positive, was marred by some errors that made him go down to T21.

Joaco’s performance was remarkable. This, because the man from Talagante generated very good shots and remained solid throughout the day, just like yesterday. On the course, Niemann had a devastating start, in which he recorded 4 birdies on holes 3, 5, 6 and 8.

And the fact is that the winner of two PGA tournaments was hungry. For this reason, he did not lower his foot on the accelerator and in the second part, Joaco made excellent shots that caused three birdies in a row at flags 12, 13 and 14.

A bogey on the 18th hole seemed to slightly tarnish his course, but Joaco was able to recover in time at the next flag, where he scored another birdie. With this result, he was three strokes from the lead.

On the other hand, the other national golfer failed to repeat the good feelings of yesterday, and his course was marked by irregularity. In the first part, he recorded five birdies on holes 1, 2, 6, 8 and 9, while a bogey on 4 slightly overshadowed his performance.

So far there were no problems for the pircano, who was doing a good performance at the TPC Craig Ranch. However, the second part was where the golfer got complicated, making three bogeys at flags 10, 14 and 15, and only one birdie, at hole 12. With this, he fell 12 places that relegated him to position T21, with a -13 card.

Meanwhile, the one who is still up in the AT&T Byron Nelson is currently the Colombian Sebastián Muñoz, who has a global of -21, followed by the American Jordan Spieth, with -20.
