Shubhankar Sharma is your third round leader at the World Golf Championships-Mexico Championship.

The Club de Golf Chapultepec played pretty easy for several of the guys today.

Sharma was solid at -2 under with a 69 today and sits atop the leader-board at -13 under for his 3 day total. Sharma did it the right way by hitting fairways and greens.

We had some really low scores also. In fact Justin Thomas fired a course record 62.

Tyrell Hatton from England, got hot and shot a -7 under par 64 with 7 birdies and no bogeys.

Really nice clean scorecard that catapulted him to within 2 shots of the lead.

Actually second place is really bunched up with 4 superstars all tied at -11 under par.

Phil Mickelson, Tyrell Hatton, Sergio Garcia, & Rafa Cabrera Bello are all only 2 strokes from first place.

Phil Mickelson really showed us what he can still do. He fired a 65 that left him at -11.

Sergio was solid at -2 for a 69 along with Rafa Cabrera Bello. 4 great players that could easily vault up the scoreboard on Sunday.

Everyone is pleased with Pat Perez this week.

His performance this week has out-stood.

Pat had a nice 68 today and is 3 strokes off the lead. He stumbled on 17 by hitting it in the water and took a double bogey 5 on the par 3.

Sharma has long been known by golfers in India and is really well-respected. His hero .growing up was Anirban Lahiri as both were Army brats and fathers were friends.

His dad said that Sharma was a great athlete and with Arjun Atwal’s success and Lahiri coming on the scene, he told his son that he should play golf also.

Then he cut down a 2 iron for the boy to hit balls with. He was hooked and as they say ” the rest is history”.

Everybody thinks the course reminds them of the TPC at Sawgrass Stadium Course. I highly recommend watching on Sunday.

We have Phil in the final group and it’s going to be a fantastic finish!
