Matt Kuchar Extends Lead At Sony Open

Chez Reavie had the touch in Hawaii on Friday. More

But he rallied strongly to produce six birdies in the remaining holes, including five on an unblemished back nine, to secure the $US1,152,000 winner's cheque.

"I've got gray hair, " he said with a laugh.

"If you play well, you can make birdies", Kuchar said.

Kuchar, who had been winless for almost four years until his win at the Mayakoba Classic late in 2018 now appears likely to add a 9th PGA Tour title just three months after his 8th. Friday, Mitchell had a hole-in-one on the 7th and turned around to card a birdie there Saturday sparking his round of 7-under 63. "Still played a good round".

Kuchar completed 54 holes with just one bogey on his card, and a four-birdie 66 got him to 18 under while Andrew Putnam holed from eight feet at the last for birdie to stay within striking distance of the leader.

"It's not often you feel like you know what you're doing with your swing and the ball's reacting the way you want it to and you're able to maneuver the ball the way you want", Kuchar told reporters.

Bryson DeChambeau tied his career low round of 63. Those times you're not in full control, you're faced with a lot of situations where golf is going to find a way to stress you out and test you. Unfortunately, he's also nearly last in putting in the field on the week.

Kuchar was at his best on a number of putts from the 50-foot range.

He became eligible for the winners-only field at Kapalua last week by winning at another beach resort - Mayakoba - last year, opening with rounds of 64-64, the kind of start he has enjoyed at Waialae.

Peter Jung, who qualified by winning an amateur tournament, played in his first PGA Tour event.

Kuchar had a 54-hole score of 193 in Mexico, the lowest of his career. Love is not playing next week on the Big Island because he is playing the Singapore Open.

Marc Leishman is battling to make headway on the leaderboard as Matt Kuchar remains out front in the US PGA Tour's Sony Open in Honolulu.

Keith Mitchell had a 63 and was four behind, along with Chez Reavie (66). His 2-over 72 beat only five players in the final round.
