Tony Finau posted the tied best score of the third round of the Rocket Mortgage Classic on Saturday, with his under-65 seven pulling him even with Taylor Pendrith after starting the first stroke of the pace.

Finau and Pendrith were co-leaders after the first round, and after building a multi-shot buffer from the rest of the field after 36 holes, they added it again to finish 21 under – four strokes ahead of Cameron Young in third place.

Each player showed a different set of skills, with Pendrith displaying a strong feel in his ability to finish holes – posting Data Golf’s seventh-best strokes-gained figure on approach shots (2.07 strokes won) and 11th better with the putter (1.98).

Finau, meanwhile, shone with his driver, finishing second in strokes won off the tee (1.98) and third tee-to-green (3.97) while being just average around the greens.

After winning the 3M Championship last weekend, Finau now has a chance to win back-to-back PGA Tour events for the first time in his career, while Pendrith is looking for his first PGA Tour victory.

Young was one of five players to match Finau’s 65, and he’s only third at 17 under, with Germany’s Stephan Jaeger in fourth at 16 under, and Patrick Cantlay rounding out the top five as the only player at 15. under.

Scott Stallings is alone at 14 under, with South Korean Kim Si-woo and Canadian Adam Svensson in the groups at 13 under and 12 under respectively to complete the top 10.

Defending champion of that event, Cam Davis, also shot 65 to move up the standings, tied for 16th at 10 under after finishing his second round just on the three-under cut line.

It was the opposite story for compatriot Adam Scott, who entered the day in a strong position at nine under and shot a 78, finishing by far the worst putter on Saturday, losing 5.62 strokes on the greens.
