Late rally lets Tony Finau keep 3-shot lead in HSBC

  • Schauffele was playing alongside Paul Casey and Tyrrell Hatton

He got much more than he imagined. I have a good opportunity.

That left the American with a three-shot lead once again, with Rose alongside first-round leader Patrick Reed and Xander Schauffele at 10 under.

Schauffele reached the green in two, and Finau faced a do-or-die birdie putt from the fringe of the green, which just missed.

Rose wasted a great round with a sloppy finish and had to settle for a 70. A huge tee shot at the 13th, however, saw him edge a shot ahead at 13-under.

Korda went to tap in after missing her birdie putt at the 18th but her playing partner Hsu told her to wait until she had finished her round so she could relish the moment.

But Rose, the world number three who could have returned to number one with a win, faltered late and finished four strokes back at 10 under. When I signed my card, I went, "Oh wow, I went birdie-birdie to get into this play-off".

Rose, who seized on a final-round collapse by 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson to win past year, looked sharp but was happy to escape with a 69 after he closed both the front and back nines with bogeys.

Finau was on the verge of falling three shots behind on the 16th hole after Rose had pitched to within 3 feet for a birdie, and Finau hit a wedge that came up well short.

A Ryder Cup hero for Europe in Paris, Fleetwood finished with a birdie for a 72 and a share of fifth with American Andrew Putnam, who shot a 67 to move to eight-under for the tournament. Fleetwood was two shots behind until he chopped up the par-5 14th hole, three-putting from 12 feet for a triple bogey.

World No. 1 Brooks Koepka is 2 over after a 71, and Dustin Johnson and Rory McIlroy slipped to 4 over and 8 over, respectively.

The HSBC Champions was the fourth and final WGC event of the calendar year, but it's part of the PGA Tour's 2018-19 schedule. I guess it wasn't the same season. McIlroy's problems at his 11th, the second, came after he had hit a ideal drive that left him only a short iron into the par five.

"I definitely feel this is one that got away", said Finau. "I knew I still needed to pull off a shot (from the middle of the fairway) and hit the green".

"I didn't have a lot going my way for the first half of the day and Rosey was making his run".
