3-way tie for lead in Ba­hamas with Woods at bot­tom

The Sun News (Sunday) - - Scoreboard -

Tony Finau had a 5-un­der 67 that turned out to be good enough for a three-way tie for the lead Satur­day in the Hero World Chal­lenge in the Ba­hamas.

Tiger Woods is over­do­ing his role as gra­cious tour­na­ment host. He shot even-par 72 to be 18th in the 18-man field.

Hen­rik Sten­son and Jon Rahm each had a 69 on an­other day of warms and mild breeze at Al­bany Golf Club. They joined Finau at 13-un­der 203.

But the tour­na­ment is wide open, and more than one player ref­er­enced Rickie Fowler’s 61 last year to win. Gary Wood­land had a 67 and, af­ter be­ing over par mid­way through the open­ing round, sud­denly was just two shots be­hind.

As for Fowler, he had a 67 to pull within three shots.
