Blixt, Smith Team Up to Lead Zurich Classic
Winds gusting to 36 miles per hour haven’t slowed down the team of Sweden’s Jonas Blixt and Australia’s Cameron Smith, who have yet to score a bogey in the Zurich Classic, leading by four strokes through three days.
Alternating shots, the duo shot a 4-under 68 on Saturday.
“It’s like going back to playing as a kid,” the 33-year-old Blixt said. “I don’t feel like there’s any stress at all out there.”
“Feels like back in the amateur days,” Smith said of playing in the first team event held on the PGA Tour since 1981, about 12 years before he was born. “It’s just nice to go out there and relax and have some fun.”
The four-stroke advantage is over the pairings of Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown, and Nick Watney and Charley Hoffman.
