Following this performance, he now shares the lead with Nick Watney and Sahith Theegala with a score of -13 going into the weekend. 

Meanwhile, the 2020-21 PGA Tour Rookie of the Year looked impeccable with his approach game. It looked like he would not miss a single green and managed to hit darts with his irons and wedges. Zalatoris was so good with his iron and wedge play that his longest putt for par was 3 feet throughout the round.

Roberto looked disappointed, as he no longer holds the course record. However, the young golfer deserved it, as there wasn’t a single stroke where he looked nervous or doubtful. He scored eleven birdies, out of which six were from 12 feet or further, with the longest being a 26-footer on the par-3 13.
