Tony Finau was in prime position to capture his second Tour title in just over a week after blasting a 65 in the third round at the Rocket Mortgage Classic to move four shots ahead.
The American, who came from five behind to win Sunday’s 3M Open and set the tournament record for the biggest comeback in the finals in Minneapolis, tied with partner Taylor Pendrith of Canada at 21-under before the final day in Detroit.
“Taylor plays great golf,” Finau said after Saturday’s game ended.
“I can’t say we’ve moved away from the guys, it’s the kind of golf course someone can shoot 8, 9, 10 under but if we put together a good round tomorrow it could be a two man race and I look forward to the challenge again.”
Cameron Young also carded a 65 to finish 17-under, followed by Germany’s Stephan Jager a shot down, while FedEx champion and world number four Patrick Cantlay – the top-ranked player – was six off the pace.
England’s Matt Wallace and Danny Willett both shot 69s, 11 and 12 shots adrift respectively, with compatriot Callum Tarren seven under, Scotland’s Russell Knox another shot behind, followed by former world number one Luke Donald at two under.
