Late rally lets Finau stay up by 3 in HSBC

The Bradenton Herald (Sunday) - - Sports -

on the 16th hole af­ter Rose had pitched to within 3 feet for a birdie, and Finau hit wedge that came up well short. He rolled in a 20-foot birdie putt from off the green to stay within two shots, hit a tee shot that rolled to within 18 inches of the cup for a short birdie on the par-3 17th, and then holed a 12-foot birdie putt on the 18th.

Rose wasted a great round with a sloppy fin­ish and had to set­tle for a 70.

He was two shots ahead go­ing to the 17th when his tee shot went off the side of a hill and into a haz­ard, lead­ing to dou­ble bo­gey. Then, his 4-iron to the par-5 18th was too far right and tum­bled down the hill and into the wa­ter. He had a chance to save par un­til miss­ing a 4-foot putt.

“Three back go­ing into to­mor­row, which is not ex­actly how it looked like it was go­ing to be with a cou­ple holes to play,” Rose said.
