Finau battles, Summerhays struggles in third round of PGA Championship at Quail Hollow

Lehi's Tony Finau held ground at Quail Hollow with an even-par 71 but Farmington's Daniel Summerhays struggled in the third round of the PGA Championship at Charlotte, North Carolina

Finau is tied for 18th and could chisel out a top 10 finish with a charge on Sunday as the field chases leader Kevin Kisner.

Finau's long game and ability to keep out of serious trouble and a big number Saturday. Finau had his third round at 2-under par heading into the back nine but gave it back with a double bogey on the par-4 No. 12. He had three birdies on the front and a birdie on the par-5 15th coming home.

After 17 holes, Finau was 1-under par but made bogey on the final 18th.

Saturday proved a real test for the normally steady Summerhays, who began the day tied with Finau at 1-over. His day started with a bogey on the first hole. He then made pars on two, three, four and five, bogeyed No. 6 and then had a costly 7 on the par-5 No. 7, which was crucial to get back on track on the front.

After shooting 39 on the front, Summerhays made par on the first four holes before making bogey on the par-4 14th. After a birdie on No. 15, he bogeyed 17 and 18 for a disappointing 77.

Summerhays will begin the final round tied for 68th with Australian superstar Adam Scott and three others.
