Cappelen takes lead at Sanderson Farms
JACKSON, Mississippi (AP) — Sebastian Cappelen shot a 7-under 65 in his first U.S. PGA Tour round to take the lead in the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Cappelen, from Denmark, opened with a bogey at the Country Club of Jackson and made eight birdies to take a two-shot lead over Robert Streb, Scott Pinckney and Canada’s Nick Taylor.
Cappelen, playing on a sponsor exemption, won the Air Capital Classic in June on the Web.com Tour.
Streb is back in contention two weeks after winning the McGladrey Classic for his first tour title.
Defending champion Woody Austin had a 70.
Play was suspended because of darkness with 15 players unable to finish.
