Then he made three straight pars before hitting his first birdie of the day on the sixth hole. Finau finished the front nine with two pars and an eagle on No. 9. The Rose Park native was at -2 heading into the back nine.

After making par on No. 10, Finau hit a birdie on No. 11, followed by four-straight pars. The 16th and 17th holes were trouble for Finau, recording a bogey on each hole. He finished the round with a birdie on No. 18 and even on the back nine.

For the round, Finau had one eagle, three birdies, 11 pars and three bogeys. Through three rounds at The Open Championship, Finau has one eagle, 12 birdies, 30 pars, 10 bogeys and one double bogey.
