Tony Finau, Jon Rahm and Henrik Stenson are tied for the lead at 13-under heading into the final round in the Bahamas.

Overnight leaders Stenson and Rahm stayed tied throughout the day and fired 3-under 69s while Finau birdied on 15th and 16th to sign for a 67.

"I played nicely birdieing four of the par-fives, and on this golf course, we have five of them," said Finau.

"That's what you have to do to play well, so I was able to do that today."

"This is a golf course I'm not very familiar with, I played it once before we played. When I'm playing well, I feel like I can score on any golf course, especially a course that has five par-fives."

"We play a lot of golf courses on the PGA Tour there's only two or three, so to be able to have those couple extra par-fives you just know you're going to have some opportunities to score and I've been able to take advantage of those opportunities," added Finau.

Alex Noren played an unlikely round. He was 2-over after 10 holes, birdied the 12th then finished birdie, eagle, triple-bogey, ace and birdie to sign for a 70 and tied for eighth at 8-under.

Tournament host Tiger Woods dropped to last place after a third-round 72 that included five birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey.

"I just haven't played clean this week," said Woods.
