Sharma leads Mexico Championship

Tyrrell Hatton was pleased with his 64 in the third round

The Indian, whose first of two European Tour wins came at the Joburg Open in December, is two shots clear of the chasing pack.

"For me, it's actually nearly like watching TV... watching all of these guys on the range, it just seems like there's a TV in front of me and I'm watching them through the TV".

After grabbing control of the WGC-Mexico Championship 2018 on Friday, Shubhankar Sharma kept rolling on Saturday to hold on to the lead heading into the final round. Sure, those names sound familiar.

As a teenager, Shubhankar Sharma spent hours watching his golfing heroes on television.

Shubhankar, who was born five years after Mickelson turned pro, has been enjoying himself in the company of superstars. Obviously, the final destination for me is the PGA TOUR.

He's 21 going on 31 with a calm mind that has transcended the brightest lights of a World Golf Championship.

But the 11-12 footer on the 18th for par did see him heave a sigh of relief and a fist pump. "Not sure if I would have made that mistake on many other holes". (I'm) very, very happy that I could grind out a par on the last hole.

He will need more of that on Sunday.

Defending champion and world number one Dustin Johnson is three shots off the pace on 10 under par alongside Pat Perez, Xander Schauffele and Brian Harman, with world number two Justin Thomas another stroke adrift. I rolled it good.

"I had a bunch of putts that were really close and a lot of them lipped and burned edges. So there is a low one in there, hopefully it's tomorrow".

Sergio Garcia (69), Tyrrell Hatton (64) and Rafa Cabrera Bello (69) are also at 11 under.

With a win on Sunday he would become the youngest player to win a WGC event, eclipsing the mark of Patrick Reed who won the 2014 WGC Mexico Championship at 23 years old. At least Sharma got the introductions out of the way before Saturday's round. "To be honest, me and my caddie Baaz (Gurbaaz Mann), we both went up to him".

"He thought we were media and he said, "not right now, after the round", Sharma told reporters, laughing as he recalled the matter.

"To be honest, I'm actually relaxed now", he said."I just wanted the first round to get out of the way", said Sharma, who has been hooked on golf ever since he was introduced to the game by his father as a six-year-old. Played so well, and the bogeys that I made today were just three putts.

"I got off to a good start, felt comfort with my game and was five under through nine which I was over the moon with".

"It went on until six in the morning back home", Sharma recalled.

For three days, Sharma has exuded a quiet confidence and a refreshing indifference to his situation.
