The top of the 2023 World Wide Technology Championship in Los Cabos, Mexico does not change and changes together. If Camilo Villegas is less incisive than the first two days, but still writes a 69 on paper which means -3 on the moving day and -19 in total, the leadership is no longer solitary for the Colombian.
In fact, Matt Kuchar arrives alongside him: for the man from Florida, a -5 lap and the possibility of staging a real duel between veterans (one is 41 years old, the other 45).

Third alone is the South African Erik van Rooyen, who with his -6 on Saturday brings himself to -18 and has no intention of giving up on the leading duo.
The great protagonist, however, is just behind him: the Canadian Mackenzie Hughes, in fact, goes up 23 places with a great -9 (and an eagle-birdie-birdie sequence between holes 1 and 3) and is fourth together with two other men stars and stripes, Will Gordon and Justin Suh.
Only the USA completes the top ten: particular credit goes to Patton Kizzire, who also shows off a -9 with an eagle and eight birdies. Joining him are Scott Piercy, Michael Kim, Carson Young and Kramer Hickok. However, Ludvig Aberg’s decline was very clear as he was unable to go beyond the par round.
In this way, the Swede loses 19 positions and is 28th, in the zone of the Belgian Thomas Detry. If he had managed to fight for victory, he would have had the chance to enter the top 40 in the world rankings. The PGA Tour is a professional men’s golf circuit played primarily in the United States.
The PGA Tour became an independent entity from the PGA in 1968. Before 1968, this championship was the PGA of America’s Tournament Players Division. The PGA Tour also manages the Champions Tour, for players aged 50 and over, and the Web.com Tour, a second-tier championship.
In 1981, the PGA challenged the PGA Tour’s use of the PGA acronym. At the end of August 1981, the championship was renamed TPA Tour for Tournament Players Association, but in March 1982, the PGA Tour regained its name following the settlement of the conflict with the PGA.
The PGA Tour does not organize the Ryder Cup, played by teams, and the four Grand Slam tournaments. However, these last meetings are on the calendar. The PGA Tour is also not a federation governing golf in the United States.
This role falls to the United States Golf Association. The other tournaments on the calendar are, however, organized by the PGA Tour.
