@PGATourBrunch Delivers Final Round Preview for WM Phoenix
Final Round Preview of the Waste Management Phoenix Open
SCOTTSDALE - Sahith Theegala posted a 2-under (69) to secure the second 54-hole lead of his career but is 0-for-1 to date in securing a tournament victory.
Defending champion Brooks Koepka is one off the lead in his bid to become the seventh player to successfully defend a Waste Management Phoenix Open title.
Beginning on No. 10 on Saturday, Scottie Scheffler recorded the round of the week, equaling the back-nine record (29) at TPC Scottsdale en route to a 9-under (62).
Xander Schauffele (T-3) is seeking to become the first player to win on the PGA Tour after finishing runner-up the year prior since Dustin Johnson did so at the 2020 Masters Tournament (T-2) in 2019.
Sam Ryder used a 54-degree wedge from 124 yards at the famed and notorious Par-3 16th to make his first ace on the PGA TOUR; first hole-in-one at “16” since 2015 (Francesco Molinari/R-3).
