Streb leads at Sea Island as Zach Johnson closes the gap

RSM Classic: Robert Streb takes three-shot lead over Zach Johnson into final round

Wallace started strongly with five birdies and a bogey on the front nine at the Seaside Course in Sea Island, Georgia and drained a 30-foot putt for par on the 18th, carding six-under par 64.

Villegas is a four-time victor - his last victory was six years ago - and knows not to get too caught up at the halfway point.

Burgoon made five birdies in six holes on the back nine and matched Streb's 67 to stay three behind alongside Johnson, while Emiliano Grillo raced to 13 under when he got hot with the putter over the last four holes. "I might have been a little overconfident here and I've learned that you still have to go out and execute shots".

Even with no spectators and only limited corporate clients allowed, Johnson will feel an entire community behind.

"Based on the amount of talent that lives here, based on the resumes that live here and having that course knowledge, it is a little bit surprising; I find it a little bit odd (that a local hasn't won the RSM)", said Johnson, a two-time major champion who has played on all 11 years of this tournament. Villegas was just on the fringe 15 feet away, but ran his birdie putt 5 feet past the hole and missed that to fall three shots back.

The Argentinian holed for eagle at the 15th and added two more putts from outside 20 feet on 17 and 18, signing for a 65, while Villegas shares fifth place with Kevin Kisner and Kyle Stanley.


Streb began his round with a quick hook but escaped trouble with par. He came up well short of the green on the par-3 third and had to get up-and-down from 65 meet, making an 8-foot par putt.

It never felt easy, but he wasn't losing any ground.

Andrew Landry shot a bogey-free 65 and is six strokes behind in a tie for eighth with Matthew NeSmith, who had a bogey-free 66, and Patton Kizzire, who made three late birdies to salvage a 70. 14-17, to get to 14-under 196.

"I like where I'm at obviously in the tournament, but I just want to get better, that's my No. 1 goal", Burgoon said.

McDonald shot 68. She had the hole-in-one on the par-3 12th and birdied the par-5 14th to get close to Kim. I don't think the wind's supposed to blow quite as hard tomorrow, so I've probably got to make a few birdies.
