Yet it was Finau who pulled ahead first, carding back to back birdies on the second and third holes to grab a one-shot lead over Stenson and Rahm, before handing that back at the next with a dropped shot on the fourth.
Rahm went out in 4-under 32 and solidified his victory with three more birdies at Nos.
"I would love to get into the top 20 by the end of next year, it's definitely the next goal", Smith said.
"That's just part of the injuries I've had and the aging process and trying to deal with that and compete". They joined Finau at 13-under 203.
Stenson and Finau are going for their first victory of the year, even though this holiday event is not attached to any tour and is considered unofficial except for the world ranking points, which are more than four of the domestic events in the fall on the Professional Golfers Association (PGA) Tour. Stenson has won at least once around the world in five of the last six years. He's a proven big-game hunter, who especially likes to bring his best stuff against other elite young pros who get more attention than him. You can't say that this is a small tournament given the field. He hit it so well off the tee but he had no choice but to stay aggressive and attack flags, and there's no reason to stop now in his final event of the year with five players separated by just two shots.
Fowler's name was mentioned a couple of times on Saturday. Beating Woods in the Ryder Cup singles was one of the greatest moments of his career, he said.
He said, "I think I've seen every video on YouTube about Seve and Tiger". I've kept saying it the same way.
"I did tell him, 'My man, you should look at my stats because it was all ball-striking, " Rahm said.

Trump says China is now open to Qualcomm-NXP deal
Qualcomm moved ahead with a stock buyback of about $30 billion that it had promised shareholders should the NXP deal fall apart. Chinese regulators declined to clear the deal, though the country later expressed regret over the transaction's collapse.
Tony Finau had a 64 and was two shots behind.
He chose to add 2 degrees of loft to his putter after opening with a 72, and he has followed with rounds of 64-67.
Rahm has said all week the key to Albany were the five par 5s and two reachable par 4s. "It's just the body is sometimes unwilling to respond to what the mind wants", the 14-times major champion told Golf Channel.
"At the same time, three-under (on Saturday), tied for the lead, I would have taken it at the start of the week". I know he's up there with my grandpa telling him everything about golf even though Seve knows a little bit. He still was only four shots behind, along with Xander Schauffele (66).
Alex Noren bounced back from a triple-bogey at 16 with a hole-in-one at the very next hole.
Rahm shot a bogey-free round, collecting seven birdies along the way.
He isn't putting a lot of stock into an event, and he wasn't about to make any comparisons to his return to golf in the Bahamas a year ago. That would be eagle-triple bogey-eagle for those scoring at home.
