How do I sync a clip from my source monitor to a pre-existing sequence using audio?

I'm producing a music video. I've already got the full length audio already in my sequence. I've got a clip in my source monitor that has only a portion of the audio married to the video clip. Is there a way to add that clip to my sequence and automatically sync to the audio that's already in my sequence without creating a multicam clip?

This isn't automatic but it works:
Scrub audio in source & timeline and find a sync point. Add it to the timeline. It will probably be off a bit. move the clip backward/forward on the timeline until it'synced. If it takes more than a minute, you're doing it wrong.

Once synced, you can then trim the clip as needed.

Since you have a guide track on each clip Premiere can sync your video to the master music track automatically via the waveform without any outboard software such as Pluraleyes. Search the help feature for instructions or search YouTube for a tutorial.
