Kuchar extends lead at Sony Open

Chez Reavie Chez Reavie The Canadian Press

Kuchar ended a four-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico last fall, and there are a few similarities.

Both courses require keeping the ball in play, and Kuchar has done that well over three rounds.

The 40-year-old Kuchar shot a bogey-free, 4-under-par 66 to take a two-stroke lead over Andrew Putnam heading to the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club https://www.waialaecc.com in Honolulu.

A sublime tee shot to three feet at the short seventh set up his second gain of the day, which was quickly followed by his third when he came within a whisker of holing from off the green for eagle at the par-five ninth.

The strangest round belonged to Reavie, who made more eagles than birdies in his round of 65.

Fellow American Keith Mitchell matched the day's best score, a seven-birdie 63, to jump into a tie for third with Chez Reavie (66), four shots behind Kuchar, who has made just one bogey through 54 holes.

Cortez means well, but there's nearly an outstanding rule: Don't attack your own people". A spokesman for Ocasio-Cortez said he's looking into the matter but declined to comment.

Kuchar maintained his lead through the back nine as Putnam began to trail by more with a bogey on the par-4 16th.

After shooting 67 on Thursday, Leishman fired a six-under-par 64 (131) on Saturday to be alongside American Ted Potter, five strokes behind Matt Kuchar, who dazzled with back-to-back 63s for a 14-under-par two-round total of 126.

"Apparently, I need to go buy a lottery ticket today, " Reavie said.

"Last year I probably ground harder than I've done in the past", he said.

Kuchar has won just twice in the dozen times he has held the 36-hole lead, but he feels with the way he is playing that he can add to his birdie count.

Australian golfer Marc Leishman has stormed up the leaderboard to be in a tie for fifth with a second-round 64, but Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth have missed the cut. Those were the only players within five shots of the lead, and all of them are chasing Kuchar. But, Kuchar closed out the front nine with two birdies in the pair's last three holes. Love is not playing next week on the Big Island because he is playing the Singapore Open. "Still played a good round".
