Ortiz led by one shot heading into the 72nd hole before draining a long birdie putt to give him some cushion.

Johnson and Matsuyama both made runs and at one time were tied for the lead.

The other player who made a big run was Brooks Koepka.

Koepka shot a 30 on the front nine to get into contention, before getting stuck at nine under.
