Finau, Sten­son, Rahm share lead

Houston Chronicle Sunday - - SPORTS SUNDAY -

Tony Finau never had seen Al­bany Golf Club at Nas­sau, Ba­hamas, un­til the pro-am at the Hero World Chal­lenge, and one as­pect of the course caught his eye im­me­di­ately.

“When I’m play­ing well, I feel like I can score on any golf course, es­pe­cially a course that has five par-5s,” Finau said.

He made birdie on four of them Sat­ur­day, lead­ing him to a 5-un­der-par 67 that gave him a share of the lead with Hen­rik Sten­son and Jon Rahm and set up a wide-open con­clu­sion that could fea­ture more than half the 18-man field.

The tour­na­ment host is not among them.

Tiger Woods took three shots from just off the green at the par-5 third hole — chip­ping is tough on ev­ery­one at Al­bany — for a dou­ble bo­gey and a ragged start that never got much bet­ter un­til a few late birdies sal­vaged a 72. He was in last place, 11 shots out of the lead.

Sten­son and Rahm each had a 3-un­der 69 to join Finau at 13-un­der 203.
