Debutants Tony Finau and Jon Rahm shared the 54-hole lead with Henrik Stenson after an absorbing third day of the Hero World Challenge here.

Finau (67), Rahm (69) and Stenson (69) -- who has four top-fives in five starts at this event in the past -- are all at 13-under going into the fourth and final round at the Albany Golf Course.

Defending champion Rickie Fowler (67), who rallied from seven shots behind last year to card a stunning 11-under 61 and win the tournament, has risen to fifth at 10-under and three behind the leaders.

The tournament host, Tiger Woods (72) occupied the bottom place of the 18-man field and he was 11 off the lead.

Woods dropped three shots in the first three holes but also had five birdies in his 72 and at the third, he had a triple bogey and overall had a lot of problem with chipping.

Behind the three leaders are Fowler (67, 10-under), Xander Schauffele (66, 9-under) and Dustin Johnson (72, 9-under) and they can all be factors on the last day.

Justin Rose, who needs to be in top-3 to get the World No1 ranking back, had four birdies in the final seven holes as he shot 68 and is tied-8th with Patrick Reed, who bounced back from his second round 78 with 66. He shot 65 on the first day.
