Landry, Johnson share Texas Open lead

Andrew Landry lost in a playoff to Jon Rahm of Spain earlier this year at the CareerBuilder Challenge and now he again is in position for his first PGA Tour victory.

Landry (pictured) birdied two of the last three holes to shoot 5-under-par 67 for the second straight day and is tied for the lead with Zach Johnson, who had a 68, heading to the final round of the Valero Texas Open on the Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio in San Antonio, Texas.

Johnson, who won the Texas Open in 2008 and 2009, holed a six-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole for his fourth birdie on the back nine and is even with Landry at 13-under 203.

Trey Mullinax sank a 16-foot eagle putt on the final hole to set the course record at 62 and is one stroke back in solo third, while Ryan Moore birdied four of the last eight holes to salvage a 70 and is two behind in fourth.

“When I made that putt on the last hole, I told my caddie, ‘I think that might be the course record,’ and he said, ‘Even if it isn’t, that’s a great round,” said Mullinax, who also holed out for eagle from 95 yards on the 14th hole. “I was 2-over on Thursday, but it wasn’t a bad 74.

“I just wanted to get better each day, and that’s what I’ve been able to do.”

Jimmy Walker, who lives in San Antonio and won his hometown event in 2015, birdied three of the last four holes for a 67 and is four down in a tie for fifth with Martin Laird of Scotland, the 2013 Texas Open Champion, who totaled 67, Chris Kirk, who finished at 68, and Sean O’Hair, who sank a 12-foot eagle putt to cap a bogey-free 65.

Grayson Murray, the first-round leader, had three birdies in the last five holes to wind up at 72 and is one more back in a tie for ninth with Richy Werenski, who carded a second straight 68.

Defending champion Kevin Chappell of Fresno and UCLA posted a 67 and is tied for 20th.
