Roberto Castro Overcomes Bee Sting to Lead at Sanderson Farms

November 6, 2015

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Roberto Castro shot a 5-under 67 on Friday to take a four-stroke lead in the waterlogged Sanderson Farms Championship.

Castro followed up his lowest score on the PGA Tour – a 10-under 62 on Thursday – with another impressive round. The highlight was an eagle on the par-4 eighth when his 122-yard shot with a pitching wedge spun back about 10 feet into the cup.

Castro fought through several distractions in the second round, including a nearly five-hour rain delay and being stung by a yellowjacket on No. 5. He shook it off and finished his second straight bogey-free round to reach 15 under at the Country Club of Jackson.

Bryce Molder, Jhonattan Vegas and D.J. Trahan are tied for second at 11 under. Molder finished his round, while Vegas and Trahan had two holes remaining when play was suspended for the day.
