“No bogeys up to this point on the scorecard in the tournament, which is nice. I think it’s a golf course that yields some birdies. You’ll have some looks, but to not make any mistakes to this point is nice and I think that’s the main reason I’ve kind of found myself on top of the leaderboard.

“I’m just hitting a lot more fairways than I’m accustomed to or than I have in the past. This golf course really opens up to you if you hit it in the short grass and it definitely has for me these first three rounds.”

Finau could become the first player to win consecutive tournaments in three years on Sunday following his win at the 3M Open last week.

Tied alongside the American is Canadian Taylor Pendrith who led by one shot after the second round and carded a 66 to retain a share of the lead.

“Obviously [Finau] made a ton of birdies and I finished the round with a lot of birdies, so it was fun. We were going back and forth. Tony bombs it off
the tee and I hit it far as well, so it was fun, kind of similar games I guess, and we attacked it very well.

“This course has shown some low scores, so you’ve got to just keep making birdies if you want to stay in it. I got off to a decent start today. I missed a short one on 3, maybe a little nerves, but hung in there. The course gives up a lot of birdies, so you’re going to need something similar to that tomorrow to have a chance. But Tony’s playing great and it’s fun to be out there. The crowds are unreal, so I’m looking forward to it.

“I feel like my game’s in a good spot, I’m driving it well, I’m hitting my wedges good, it’s nice to see some putts go in. We’ll see.”

Cameron Young, who is on course to become the rookie of the year, carded a 65 to move into third place at 17-under.

Germany’s Stephan Jaeger (65) is in fourth at 16-under followed by American Patrick Cantlay (66) at 15-under.
