Jon Rahm hit 17 of 18 greens in regulation and made a single bogey for a 65 at the Stadium Course to take a share of the lead heading into the final round.

"Nothing but positive," said the Spaniard. "Ball-striking felt amazing. Hit a lot of great shots out there off the tee. Giving myself a lot of opportunities with the irons. Took advantage of quite a few of them. So very confident going into tomorrow and knowing that I'm going to have to shoot another low score if I want to have a chance to win."

Rahm  could move up to number 3 in the World Rankings with a win on Sunday.

American rookie Davis Thompson, who led after the first two rounds, carded a 67 at the Stadium Course to retain a share of the lead at 23-under.

"I felt like I stayed patient all day and made some putts," said Thompson. "Got off to a great start, which always helps. Up-and-downs on 5 and 6 were huge for me just keeping the momentum going.

"I was really proud with how I stayed patient. Didn't really force anything. Made a bad bogey on 14, but came back and birdied 16. So it was a good way to finish."

"It's great. I feel like I don't have anything to lose in my rookie year. Just kind of freewheel it. But I'm excited to play with Jon. He's obviously a top 5 player in the world. He's very good. But I'm excited about the challenge and just looking forward to tomorrow."

American J.T Poston made 24 birdies or better through three rounds, surpassing his previous career-best of 22 birdies or better through 54-holes at a single event (2019 Rocket Mortgage Classic). He carded a 66 at La Quinta for a share of third place at 19-under.

Tied alongside Poston is South Africa's Christiaan Bezuidenhout who carded a 10-under 62 at the Nicklaus Tournament Course posting a career-low 18-hole score on Tour in his 181st round.
