"Obviously, everything worked fine for the first two days," Poston said. "And today wasn't a sharp tee to the green and I didn't putt. Being able to still shoot a very solid 4-under today gives me confidence for tomorrow.

Grilo in his second career PGA Tour title and first bid since 2015. Birdie four of his last five holes. Grilo shot 64-65 in the last two rounds after opening at 68.

"Especially here, with soft greens and perfect conditions, you have to look at that range of 67, 66, which means that there is little wind and those who shoot with less than 3 under pars at the front are really good at it. I'm playing. Opportunities are mostly in the back nine. "

Hoag opened a birdie eagle on his way to seven birdie rounds for one bogey.

I really don't have a number. Maybe if I try to make a birdie more than anyone else tomorrow, I'll do the rest myself."
