Tony Finau had a 5-under 67 that turned out to be good enough for a three-way tie for the lead Saturday in the Hero World Challenge.

Tiger Woods is overdoing his role as gracious tournament host. He shot even-par 72 to be 18th in the 18-man field.

Henrik Stenson and Jon Rahm each had a 69 on another day of warms and mild breeze at Albany Golf Club. They joined Finau at 13-under 203.

But the tournament is wide open, and more than one player referenced Rickie Fowler's 61 last year to win. Gary Woodland had a 67 and, after being over par midway through the opening round, suddenly was just two shots behind.

As for Fowler, he had a 67 to pull within three shots.
