When Utah’s Tony Finau is making his putts, he’s one of the top players on the PGA Tour.

Saturday afternoon at the RBC Canadian Open golf tournament, the former Salt Lake City resident was really, really making his putts.

As a result, Finau is tied with Rory McIlroy for the tournament lead at 11-under at St. George’s Golf & Country Club in Toronto heading into Sunday’s final round.

Finau, 32, tied his career low round with a 62 on Saturday and moved 15 spots up the leaderboard on the course that fellow Utah resident Mike Weir — a Canadian who did not make the cut — grew up playing.

“After (shooting a 1-over-par 71) yesterday, I had a little sour taste in my mouth. I played really nicely and I didn’t finish the way I wanted to. A couple bogeys coming in when I was right there.” — Utah’s Tony Finau.
