SALT LAKE CITY – Utahn and PGA Tour golfer Tony Finau finished one under par on day three to make his overall score +1 at the BMW Championship.

The BMW Championship is held at Olympia Fields Country Club in Olympia Fields, Illinois from August 17-20.

Finau’s score of +1 slots him in at 36th.

The front nine was kinder to Finau than the back nine in round three. After hole nine, Finau was at -3 on the day with three birdies. From holes 10 to 18, he recorded zero birdies and two bogeys.

If he could turn those bogeys into pars, he would be slotted ten spots higher at 26th.

Matt Fitzpatrick and Scottie Scheffler are tied for first with a score of -11. Brian Harman, Max Homa, and Rory McIlroy fill out the top five.

Other notable golfers ahead of Finau include Xander Schauffele, Wyndham Clark, Rickie Fowler, and Jordan Spieth.
