Jon Rahm endured a wild end to his third round at the BMW PGA Championship to drop back into a share of the lead with Danny Willett at the flagship European Tour event Saturday at Virginia Water, England.

Holding a two-stroke lead after playing the first 16 holes in 5 under, Rahm hit a spectator with his second shot at No. 17 – stopping his ball going out of bounds. The world No. 6 pitched to 10 feet and three-putted for bogey.

Rahm also was close to driving out of bounds at the 18th hole and needed to take a drop. He holed from 20 feet for an unlikely par while Willett got up and down from a greenside bunker for a birdie to match his playing partner’s 4-under 68.

PGA: Sebastian Munoz of Colombia made a 15-foot birdie on the 17th hole and saved par at the end for a 9-under 63, giving him a one-shot lead in the Sanderson Farms Championship in Jackson, Mississippi, as he tries to give South America back-to-back winners on the PGA Tour.
