Tony Finau Plays Improved Third Round At PGA Championship
BETHPAGE, N.Y. – Utah native Tony Finau had a much better round at Bethpage Black as he shot one-under par in the third round of the PGA Championship.
Finau sits with a tournament score of two-over par after he shot even in the first round and three-over in the second round.
He pared the first two holes of the third round before getting a bogey on No. 3, birdie on No. 4 and bogey on 5 and 6. Finau nailed two straight pars on No. 7 and 8 before finishing the front-nine with a birdie.
Finau finished the front-nine at +1. The back-nine was a great start with a bogey on No. 10 and two straight pars. The momentum swinging hole was No. 13 when Finau picked up his second eagle of the tournament. He scored a par on the next four holes before getting a birdie on No. 18 to score a -2 on the back-nine and a -1 third round score.
After Finau nailed the eagle putt on No. 13, he celebrated with a little shimmy.
