Ariya, 25, and Moriya, 26, finished at 24-under 256 at windy Midland Country Club golf course in Michigan.

In the first round, they shot a 67 in the alternate shot format, then fired a 59 on Thursday in best ball and carded a 71 in alternate shot Friday to enter the final round two shots behind American Clanton and Thailand’s Suwannapura, who closed yesterday with a 64.

Clanton and Suwannapura won the inaugural event in 2019 by a whopping by six strokes. The tournament was cancelled last year because of the global coronavirus pandemic.
