Trey Mullinax opened with a course record-tying 63. He followed that up with a Friday 71 to lead by one heading to the weekend. On Saturday, Mullinax posted a 68 to get to 14 under and will keep that one-shot lead through 54 holes.

On Sunday, he’ll look to close out a wire-to-wire win in the season-ending Korn Ferry Tour Championship.

Joseph Bramlett and John Huh each shot the round the day, a 65. Bramlett is solo second at 13 under; Huh is solo third at 12 under. Lee Hodges and Hayden Buckley are tied for fifth at 11 under at Victoria National Golf Club in Newburgh, Indiana.

Mullinax has battled several injuries to his feet and back over the last few seasons. He missed the KFT’s top 25 from this season which meant he still had work to do this week to secure his PGA Tour card for next season.

“I knew how important this week was. I was trying to treat it like any other tournament, though,” he said after Saturday’s round.

A top-20 finish would do it. He’s in great position now to get back to the big leagues.
