An Holds Lead After Round 3 at Waste Management Open

A third round 65 was good enough to get Byeong Hun An to -16 and a 1-stroke lead heading into Sunday. An made 5 birdies over his first 10 holes, and added another on the 17th. Martin Laird is one back at -15 after a 65 of his own, including four straight birdies on holes 3, 4, 5, and 6. John Peterson had the low round of the day with an 8-under 63, moving him into a third place tie at -12 with Graham DeLaet, Michael Kim, and reigning champ Hideki Matsuyama. Phil Mickelson made a move on Saturday, firing a 6-under 65, getting to -10 on the week. John Rahm, starting on the back nine, tore up his first nine holes of the day, making the turn at -6 after birdieing 15, 16, and 17. Rahm was unable to keep the hot streak going, and played the front nine at even par, finishing -9 through three rounds. With 10 golfers within five shots of the lead, we could see an exciting finish Sunday – but hopefully it ends before kickoff of the Super Bowl this year.
