After a more than seven-hour rain delay on day one, teams got back on track to complete the third round on Saturday, with Rahm and Palmer playing 30 holes and Stallings and Mullinax completing 27 for a share of the lead at 23-under 193.

In the alternate-shot second round, Rahm and Palmer carded a seven-under 65 followed by a 64 in the best-ball third round, making just one bogey when both players found the water off the 17th tee.

Rahm gave a solid performance in the third round, making eight birdies, with Palmer saying he had learned a lot from the Spaniard.


“He’s just fun to be around,” Palmer told the PGA Tour website.

“He’s actually a great guy. I’ve enjoyed every second with him. When you’re up close and personal and watching it and see the shots he can hit around the green, you know, his short game is phenomenal. You can learn something from that, too, so I learned a lot. Honour to be a part of it.”

Stallings and Mullinax share the lead with the Spanish-American duo after following up their second-round 70 with a blemish-free 62 in the third round, including an eagle from Mullinax on par-five second.


Brandan Grace and Justin Harding sit in third one shot back, while England’s Tommy Fleetwood and Spanish team-mate Sergio Garcia finished in a tie for sixth at 19 under ahead of Sunday’s alternate-shot final round.
