India’s Shubhankar Sharma will take a two-shot lead into the final day of the WGC-Mexico Championship on Sunday as he attempts to become the first player in 30 years to win on his PGA debut.
The 21-year old holed a par-saving putt on the final hole for a 69 to finish on 13-under par, two shots ahead of Masters champion Sergio Garcia (69), Phil Mickelson (65), Rafa Cabrera Bello (69) and Tyrrell Hatton (64).
Defending champion Dustin Johnson was a shot further back on 10 under.

The story of the day, however, belonged to reigning PGA player of the year Justin Thomas, who shot a course-record 62, breaking the mark set by his best friend Jordan Spieth, who recorded a 63 in last year’s third round.
Thomas, seeking back-to-back victories after triumphing at last week’s Honda Classic, fired eight birdies to surge back into contention at nine under par.
“Obviously, it was a great day,” Thomas said afterwards. “Who knows what's going to happen, but I'm definitely moving in the right direction.”
