Brooks Koepka birdied the par-5 18th at East Lake Golf Club on Sunday to take a one-stroke lead after Round 3 of the Tour Championship.

The final pairing of Koepka and Justin Thomas made it through five holes of their third round on Saturday before play was suspended due to inclement weather. Koepka finished that round with a 2-under 68 despite bogeying two of his first three holes.

Rory McIlroy, who also fired a 2-under 68, and Xander Schauffele, who carded a 3-under 67, enter the final round just one stroke off the lead. Schauffele's round was highlighted by a hole-in-one on the 240-yard par-3 9th - the second player to make an ace on the hole after Chez Reavie did so Saturday.

Thomas looked poised to play in the final group Sunday afternoon, making three birdies - including two chip-ins - on the back nine, but a triple-bogey on No. 16 torpedoed those chances.

Koepka and McIlroy will battle it out in the final pairing with $15 million on the line.
