For two holes in the third round of the 2019 Utah Championship presented by Zions Bank at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington, local star and former BYU golfer Daniel Summerhays appeared like he would head to the final round atop the leaderboard.

A bogey on No. 17, however, dropped him back into a tie with Ohio native Justin Lower and the duo finished the day knotted at 11-under-par.

Now everything comes down to what happens in the final round on Sunday.

Summerhays put together his third straight solid, under-par round on Saturday as he finished with a 68 for the day (3-under-par).

He came through with birdies on Holes No. 4 and 5, but ended up having to take a bogey on No. 6 to slow his momentum.

It was a similar story on the back-nine as birdies on Holes 12, 14 and 15 put him in the lead before he ended up needing five strokes to finish the par-4 17th hole.

Lower, the co-leader, was just slightly more consistent on the day as he also had five birdies and but just a single bogey, giving him a round of 67 (4-under-par).

Four other golfers are just a single stroke off the pace while 26 competitors are five strokes or fewer behind and still have a chance to make a charge.

One of those is the other former Cougar, Zac Blair, who shot even-par 71 on Saturday to remain at 6-under-par for the tournament.

Blair had a couple of birdies on the front nine in the third round but got tagged with bogeys on Holes No. 10 and 11 to move him back to even for the day.

The final round of the 2019 Utah Championship will begin Sunday at 9 a.m. at Oakridge Country Club in Farmington.

Blair is slated to tee off at 1 p.m. with South Africa’s Tyrone Van Aswegen, the leader after two rounds.

Summerhays and Lower are paired together for the final day of action and will start at 3 p.m.
