Kuchar stays in control heading for final day in Hawaii

Matt Kuchar of the United States plays his shot from the fifth tee during the second round of the Sony Open In Hawaii at Waialae Country Club on 11 January 2019 in Honolulu Hawaii

Chez Reavie (66) - who had five birdies through nine holes - fell into a two-way tie for third place (14 under) with Keith Mitchell (63). It's not often you're in full control.

He finished at 22-under 258, the third-lowest total in Waialae history behind the PGA Tour record of 253 by Justin Thomas in 2017 and Jimmy Walker's 72-hole score of 257 when he won in 2015. He holed out for eagle three times from the fairway - a sand wedge from 101 yards on No. 10 at the start of his round; a 9-iron from 149 yards on No. 16, and a gap wedge from 135 yards on No. 6.

Matt Kuchar went more than four years without a victory before winning the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November and now he's looking for more.

Andrew Putnam took the lead over Kuchar as the two began their third round as the one-time PGA Tour victor impressed.

"I tell people that nerves in golf are kind of like public speaking", Kuchar said. Kuchar has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae, and he only came seriously close to one bogey until saving par from a bunker on the par-3 17th.

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

He closed with a 68 and moved into the top 50 for the first time in his career. Putnam missed an 8-foot birdie attempt on No. 18.

Anderson, Gurley run Rams past Cowboys, into NFC title game
The Cowboys deserve some credit for fighting back in the second half and making it a game, but they couldn't do enough and fell short 30-22.


"Didn't feel as easy as the first two days", Putnam said.

"Andrew was tough. He was battling me, took the lead.it was nice to have that pressure, to have come through and to make some birdies coming in". "Still played a good round".

DeChambeau's round of 7-under 63 jumped him up into a nine-way tie for fifth place (11 under).

Putnam's birdie at the third and a series of solid pars proved enough to take him into the lead, which he maintained at the turn when he matched Kuchar's birdie at the long ninth.

He at least made the cut, more than could be said for Jordan Spieth, who missed by a stroke despite a 66 for one-under.

"I'm just going to stay aggressive". He shot 76. Also missing the 54-hole cut was Steve Stricker, who will stay in Hawaii an extra week for the opening event of the PGA Tour Champions season. Kuchar wobbled to a 1-over 36 on the front nine and let a whole host of players back into the festivities before making three straight 3s on the back nine and two birdies in his first three holes. Love is not playing next week on the Big Island because he is playing the Singapore Open.
