Greyson Sigg moved into the lead position in the Korn Ferry Tour Championship on Saturday, and will take a one-shot lead over Dan McCarthy into the final round at Victoria National in Evansville, Indiana. Sigg fired a 6-under 66 in the third round to back up opening rounds of 65-69. He stands at 16 under.
Sigg racked up the wins while playing college golf at Georgia, but on Sunday, he’ll be chasing his first Korn Ferry Tour title.
It couldn’t come at a better time, considering what is on the line this week. Five exemptions into the 2020 U.S. Open are available to the top-five players (not otherwise exempt) in a points list based on the past three events.
The top-10 players on the Korn Ferry Tour’s overall point standings at the conclusion of this week’s event will also gain entry into the PGA Tour’s opposite-field events during the 2020-21 season.
So far this season, Sigg has played 16 events, made the cut in 14 and had 10 top-25 finishes.
“I’ve been hitting it really well, giving myself a lot of opportunities and, you know, just kind of staying patient. And I was able to make a couple putts today, too, which is nice,” said Sigg. “Hopefully that putter stays hot for tomorrow.”
As for McCarthy, the 35-year-old who played his college golf at Le Moyne College, an NCAA Division II school in Syracuse, New York, is in his fourth full season on the Korn Ferry Tour. He started the week No. 31 on the points list.
Second-round co-leader Seth Reeves, already a winner on the Korn Ferry Tour this season, fell two spots into a tie for third with Dawie van der Walt. Reeves had a third-round 68 to reach 14 under for the week. Van der Walt had 67.
