GREENSBORO, N.C. – Carl Pettersson isn’t the only player taking advantage of the perfect scoring conditions at Sedgefield on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Brendon de Jonge has just finished a round of 65 that left him in the tie at 9 under. The big man from Zimbabwe has been playing extremely well of late – tying for seventh at the John Deere Classic, 13th at the Viking Classic, fourth at the Greenbrier Classic and 26th at last week’s PGA.
Kyung-tae Kim, who is playing on a special international exemption, also is in that logjam at 9 under after matching de Jonge’s 65. He closed with a 31 on the back that included four birdies.
Tommy Gainey, who leads at 12 under, and Webb Simpson, also at 9 under, tee off at 2:05 p.m. ET
