Co-leader at the start of the moving day, Scottie Scheffler delivered an almost perfect day after three rounds of the Hero World Challenge in 65 (-7) despite a bogey on hole 18. He will start this Sunday with a total of -16 and three shots ahead of Matt Fitzpatrick. Justin Thomas completes the podium at -11. Another day under par for Tiger Woods, who also ended his round with a bogey at 18. He still scored five birdies for a card of 71 (-1). He is 16th.

Co-leader at the start of the moving day with Jordan Spieth, world number 1 Scottie Scheffler left his Texan co-competitor behind to take the sole lead in the Hero World Challenge. Thanks to a card of 65 (-7) and two eagles in his day, Scottie Scheffler is three strokes ahead of his closest opponent, the Englishman Matt Fitzpatrick.

The British also scores 65 (-7) with an incredible comeback: only two pars on his return! Justin Thomas scores 68 (-4) to take 3rd position in the ranking.

Jordan Spieth, co-leader with Scheffler at the start this Saturday, signs a shy card of 71 (-1) and drops to fourth place in the ranking of this event in the Bahamas.

Tiger Woods continues a second day in a row under par with a card of 71 (-1). Yet poorly launched with a bogey at 1 then a bogey at 2, Woods then made a series of birdies at the end of his round for a passage to -2 at mid-course. Too bad for the Tiger who closes his round with a bogey at 18. He is 16th in the total PAR.

Another difficult day for Will Zalatoris who scores 79 (+7), in trouble from hole 1 with a triple bogey. He remains last at +12 total.
