AUGUSTA, Ga. – Tony Finau had a better third round than his second round of The Masters at Augusta National.

Finau finished the third round with a -1, 71 after ending the second round at +3, 75.

The Rose Park native is tied for 44th at -1 for the tournament and is 15 shots back of the leader. He started the third round on Saturday with a par on the first hole, followed by a birdie on No. 2. Finau recorded two straight pars before getting his first bogey on No. 5. After a par on No. 6, bogey on No. 7, birdie on No. 8 and par on the ninth hole, Finau finished the front nine at even par.

The back nine had a strong start with a birdie on No. 10, followed by four straight pars before getting another birdie on No. 15. Finau picked up a bogey on No. 16 before getting a par on each of the last two holes.

Finau made four birdies, 11 pars and three bogeys in the third round.

Due to the weather delay on Thursday, play was backed up where Finau had to finish the second round on Saturday and was able to get his third round in as well after making the cut.

Finau will begin the final round at 6:56 a.m. MST on Sunday. He will be grouped with John Augenstein and Christiaan Bezuidenhout.
