Colombian Muñoz began the defense of the title in the PGA Sanderson Farms Championship as leader

The Colombian golfer Sebastian Muñoz began this Thursday the defense of the title of champion of the PGA tournament Sanderson Farms Championship with a record of 64 strokes (-8) and shares the lead with three other players at the completion of the first round.

Muñoz made a brilliant tour with nine birdies, including the four in a row that he achieved from the thirteenth hole and after he had another three followed from the third to the fifth.

His only blemish was the bogey he committed on the ninth hole and that in the end it would be the one that prevented him from being alone in the leadership he shares with Americans Charley Hoffman, Jimmy Walker and Kevin Chappell.

Along with Muñoz, the Spanish Sergio García finished in 17th place by delivering 68-stroke card (-4), the same as 10 other golfers.

Meanwhile, Argentine Emiliano Grillo and Colombian Camilo Villegas finished with 69 strokes (-3) the course of the course that is located in the Jackson Country Club, and shared 28th place with nine other golfers.

Another Argentine, Fabián Gómez, had a record of 71 strokes (-1) to place 65, while the Venezuelan Jhonattan Vegas and the Mexican Carlos Ortiz finished with a score of 73 (+1).

The Spanish Rafael Cabrera did not have his best performance either and completed the course with 72 strokes (par).
