Finau, Stenson, Rahm share lead
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.
