Cameron Champ takes opening lead in Mississippi

October 25, 2018

Cameron Champ fired a 65 in the opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to take the lead. Champ, a rookie this season, is famous for his long drives and produced the longest of the day (347 yards) to set up his birdie at the 18th.

“I feel like, in this day and age, it's kind of what everyone is drawn to. At this point now, I definitely just try to block it out a little bit,” he said. “It’s great you can hit it far, but if other parts of your game aren't good you're not going to be able to play the game.”

He set the Web.com Tour driving distance record earlier this year (343.7 yards) but also finished sixth on the money list and won the Utah Championship earning his PGA Tour card less than a year after turning pro. He kicked off his rookie year with a T25 finish at the season-opening Safeway Open.

Twelve players did not complete their round after play was suspended due to darkness.
