Durant Leads Mayakoba Golf Classic
The 45-year-old Durant, a four-time tour winner, had a 14-under 199 total on the Mayakoba Resort’s El Camaleon course. He opened with rounds of 64 and 66.
Joe Durant remained in position for his first PGA Tour victory since 2006, birdieing the final two holes Saturday for a 2-under 69 and a two-stroke lead in the Mayakoba Golf Classic.
Charles Warren (65) and J.P. Hayes (69) were tied for second, Chad Collins (67) and Cameron Beckman (69) followed at 11 under, and Kevin Stadler (67) was 10 under.
John Daly was tied for 17th at 7 under after a 69.
Durant birdied the first two holes, then dropped three strokes on the next two. He missed a 1 1/2-foot on No. 3 en route to a double bogey, and three-putted for a bogey on No. 4. “Two holes of poor putting,” he said.
He rebounded with birdies on 8 and 9, bogeyed No. 14 and closed with the two straight birdies.
Charles Warren, making his first good start of the season, eagled No. 8, hitting driver and 7-iron to 6 feet.
“The key to the golf course is kind of playing the into-the-wind holes well and kind of just controlling your golf balls and making pars, and then taking advantage of your downwind holes, which I did. I mean, this golf course, you can’t really get ahead of yourself. You got to stay in the present with the wind and all that.” Charles Warren said.
