Tony Finau fired a 5-under 67 on Saturday to join Henrik Stenson and Jon Rahm atop the leaderboard after Round 3 at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas. Tournament host Tiger Woods shot an even-par 72 and sits 11 shots back in last place.
Finau started the day two shots behind the leaders and dropped another shot with a bogey on No. 2 before notching four birdies over the next seven holes. Two more birdies on 14 and 15 put him in the thick of things going into Sunday’s final round.
Round 2 leaders Stenson and Rahm both shot 3-under 69 on Saturday to stay tied for the lead. Rahm, who posted a bogey-free 63 on Friday, carded two bogeys and five birdies on the day. Stenson stumbled slightly on the back nine after going out in 4-under 32. He balanced bogeys at 13 and 16 with a birdie at 15, but never got the same momentum going.
Making the biggest leap of the day, Xander Schauffele had an eagle and six birdies during his 6-under 66 to move into a tie for sixth place with Dustin Johnson. First-round co-leader and reigning Masters champion Patrick Reed rebounded from a second-round 77 with a 6-under 66 to move into a tie for eighth with Justin Rose and Alexander Noren.
Woods had a troubling start, going bogey-double-bogey on Holes 2 and 3, but birdies on 6 and 9 brought him back to 1-over at the turn.
He balanced out two more bogeys on the back with three birdies to finish even for the day. He will play today alongside Hideki Matsuyama.
