Power & Hearn struggle to stay in the hunt in Louisiana while Rahm & Palmer tied for the lead


The European pair can challenge with a solid round on SundayGraeme McDowell remains in the hunt for the Zurich Classic title, sitting just outside the top ten, five shots off the lead going into the final day in New Orleans.


Playing alongside Sweden's Henrik Stenson, the duo carded a third round 66 to sit on 18 under par, five shots off leading groups of Jon Rahm and Ryan Palmer, and Scott Stallings and Trey Mullinax.


The final round will return to the alternate shot format, which will put pressure on all contesting partnerships with lots of fluctuation expected at the top of the leaderboard.


Rahm gave a solid performance in the third round, making eight birdies, with Palmer saying he had learned a lot from the Spaniard.


Seamus Power and his Canadian partner David Hearn, meanwhile, sit in 21st place heading into the final round in Louisiana.


Brandan Grace and Justin Harding sit in third one shot back, while England's Tommy Fleetwood and Spanish team-mate Sergio Garcia finished in a tie for sixth at 19 under ahead of Sunday's alternate-shot final round.
