Zac Blair, Patrick Fishburn atop leaderboard going into Zurich final round

Zac Blair

Utah natives and former BYU teammates Zac Blair and Patrick Fishburn shot a 60 in four-ball (best ball) — one shy of a tournament record — and took the lead Saturday after 54 holes of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in Avondale, La.

The two-man team is at 23-under 193, one shot ahead of Luke List and Sweden’s Henrik Norlander (62 on Saturday).

Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and teammate Shane Lowry of Ireland (64) are two strokes back, tied for third with Ryan Brehm and Mark Hubbard (64).

Blair and Fishburn, each looking for his first PGA Tour victory, carded 29 on the front nine with an eagle at the par-5 No. 2 and birdies at Nos. 1, 4, 5, 7 and 8. They stayed hot with birdies at Nos. 10, 11, 13, 14 and 15. Three consecutive pars to close out the round left them one stroke off the 18-hole tournament record of 59 set by Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele in Round 1 of the 2022 event.

Fishburn, a tour rookie, had made two cuts in nine starts in 2024 entering the week. Blair is making his 185th start on tour and his best finish is a tie for second at the 2023 Travelers Championship.

The team event moves back to foursomes for the final round Sunday at TPC Louisiana.
