South Korea’s Byeong Hun An maintained his position at the top of the leaderboard after three rounds of the Waste Management Phoenix Open on Saturday after shooting a six-under par 65 to finish at 16 under.
An, who is seeking his maiden PGA Tour victory in just his second season on tour, shot a bogey-free round with six birdies to hold a one-shot lead over Martin Laird of Scotland going into the last day.
America’s John Peterson shot the lowest round of the day, with a 63 to secure a tie for third place at 12-under par along with 2016 winner Hideki Matsuyama, Graham Delaet and Michael Kim.
Round 3 is complete.
