Sebastián Muñoz shot a 4-under 67 on Moving Day to take the solo lead into the final round of the John Deere Classic.

Prolonged rain softened the course and gave rise to low scoring on Saturday.

Muñoz started the day one shot behind leader Luke List and started well with birdies at the 2nd and third. He bogeyed the par-4 4th and 6th but another birdie at the 8th let him make the turn in 1-under 34. He fired three more birdies on the back nine and stayed bogey-free to reach 16-under 197.

Brandon Hagy also closed with a 67 to take second place at 15-under.

A shot behind at 14-under is a group of five players tied in third place with a group of four players a further shot back tied for 8th, including overnight leader List (71), meaning there are ten players within three shots of the top of the leaderboard and twenty within five shot, and all to play for on Sunday.

“The beauty of this place is it ain’t over until it’s legitimately over,” said past champion Zach Johnson (67), who is T22 at 10-under.

“I think it’s the design of the golf course. Quality shots are rewarded, errant shots are penalized. Obviously, that’s the case anywhere. But here, it’s polarized. The moment you get off track on 14, 15 and obviously 18, you can go the other way.”
