PGA Tour rookies Russell Henley and Scott Langley will play one more round together at the Sony Open, this time with a trophy and a Masters invitation at stake.

Henley two-putted from 30 feet for birdie on the last hole for a 3-under 67. That gave him a share of the lead with Langley, who had a 65. They set the tournament scoring record through 54 holes at 17-under 193 and had a three-shot lead over Tim Clark.

Henley and Langley each have a chance to become the first rookies to win in their PGA Tour debut since Garrett Willis at the 2001 Tucson Open.

Clark made birdie on the 18th hole for a 66. Otherwise, the final group would have had three rookies. Scott Gardiner was another shot back.
