Henrik Stenson will start the final round of the 2017 Arnold Palmer invitational with a one-shot lead, and the Swede will be paired with Bryson DeChambeau of the United States in the final pairing of the day.
Stenson sits at 12-under through three rounds, one shot ahead of DeChambeau and two ahead of Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy. The latter carded a score of five-under 67 on Saturday, among the top scores, and appears in fine form heading into the last round.

Stenson maintained his lead on Saturday but carded his worst round of the tournament so far, a one-under 71 that shrunk his advantage to just a single shot.
With three bogeys and four birdies, the Swede has done most of his damage with the putter, per sportswriter Rick Reilly:
The 41-year-old has long stood out for his consistency, and took his sixth PGATour win last year, at the Wyndham Championship.
He will face a real struggle to defend his lead on Sunday, however, as some of his rivals are catching fire at just the right time.
Both McIlroy and Rose carded a round of five-under 67 on Saturday, moving within two and three shots of the lead, respectively. The former finished with just one bogey in Round 3, and made a sensational eagle on the 12th.
Per bet365, it was part of a great run on the back-nine:
Rose’s outing was remarkably similar, with one bogey on the 15th offset by six birdies. The two Brits will play their final round together.
Woods is tied for 10th after a solid round of three-under golf on Saturday, and he chases Stenson by five shots. He finished Round 3 on a high, with a birdie on the 18th, but while his short game has been on point, he’s had some issues with his approaches.
Here’s a look at his final make:
Day carded his best round of the tournament, a five-under 67, but the Australian sits too far back at this point, with Stenson ahead by seven shots. The same holds true for John Huh and Austin Cook, who carded the best scores on Saturday, playing rounds of six-under golf.(via @bleacherreport)
