“I think we just wanted to hit a bunch of quality golf shots, and we did that today,” said Cantlay. “We really fought hard and made a bunch of those mid-range putts, especially in the middle of the round, and that kind of kept the momentum going. It’s kind of tricky out there with the wind how it is, so I thought we played a nice round today.

“You see more birdie attempts in best ball. Alternate-shot is an opportunity to do some cool things if you’re making a lot of birdies, but for the most part you’re trying to leave your partner in a good spot to make an easy par,” said Schauffele.

Fellow American David Lispky and playing partner Aaron Rai of England lie in a share of second place at 16-under alongside bogey-free Americans Doc Redman and Sam Ryder after both teams closed with a 67. All four are still looking for their first PGA Tour victory.

“It’s just been as stress free as it can in this kind of format,” said Ryder. “You have a tendency, I think, sometimes to try harder because you’re not just kind of feeling like you’re letting yourself down, you’re trying almost a little harder for your teammate. He’s swinging it great, putting me in good positions off the tee, playing from the fairway, chipping it nice a couple times when we had to, and everything has just been solid.”

South Africans Garrick Higgo and Brander Grace (65) share fourth place with Americans Wyndham Clark and Cameron Tringale (67).

The format wil return to best-ball on Saturday with the final round being alternate shot.
