"When I'm playing well, I feel like I can score on any golf course, especially a course that has five par 5s," Finau said. He made birdie on four of them Saturday, leading him to a 5-under 67 that gave him a share of the lead with Henrik Stenson and Jon Rahm and set up a wide-open conclusion that could feature more than half the 18-man field. The tournament host is not among them. Tiger Woods took three shots from just off the green at the par-5 third hole --- chipping is tough on everyone at Albany --- for a double bogey and a ...
