Jimenez tops star-studded leaderboard; final round tee times
Miguel Angel Jimenez will take a one-shot lead into Sunday’s final round at the 2021 American Family Insurance Championship, with two past champions and other legendary players right behind him. Sunday tee times begin at 8:50 a.m., with the leaders teeing off at 11 a.m.
Jimenez finished Saturday at 10 under after shooting a second-round 69 on the fast and firm University Ridge Golf Course. Fred Couples, the 2017 AmFam Champ winner, is in second place at nine under. Defending champion Jerry Kelly, Jim Furyk and Retief Goosen are tied for third place at eight under.
“The thing you have to do tomorrow is keep patience, have a good swing rhythm and let everything happen,” Jimenez said after Saturday’s round. “You have to respect all the players that are behind you. They're all great players, and tomorrow the one who plays better will win the tournament.”
Three players are tied for sixth place at seven under, including Jay Haas, who shot his age Saturday with a five under 67.
“Well, it was a good day for me obviously, a good score,” Haas said. “I played very well tee to green. I had a lot of chances, didn't make too many mistakes and that's what you have to do in any round of golf.”
Player-host Steve Stricker is in a tie for 23rd place after shooting an even par 72.
