Why Cameron Smith, Will Zalatoris say the leaderboard of the FedEx St.  Jude Championship is so packed - Business Appeal

The blistering Memphis heat broke Saturday as the thick humidity nearly dissipated, helping the crowd at the FedEx St. Jude Championship to swell to its largest size of the week.

Likewise, so did the leaderboard. As the final pairing of Sepp Straka and JJ Spaun walked off the course at TPC Southwind, there were 15 golfers within four shots of Spaun, maintaining his lead through three rounds at 13 under. The locked leaderboard sets up a potential Sunday barnstorming with a tournament-record $2.7 million prize on the line.

Straka takes second by himself at 12 under, while Cameron Smith, Will Zalatoris and Trey Mullinax are tied for third another stroke back.

Despite early exits from World No. 1 and FedExCup points leader Scottie Scheffler, Rory McIlroy and Jordan Spieth, some prominent names remain in the hunt.
