Kuchar leads by 2 at Sony

Kuchar has also been in fine form after ending a three-year title drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico late last year.

Main storyline heading into Sunday: Since 2011, five players have opened a PGA Tour event with consecutive rounds of 63 or better.

Keith Mitchell (63) and Chez Reavie (66) are four strokes off the pace going into the final round, which appears likely to be a shootout between the top two at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. They were tied through seven holes until Putnam made bogey on No. 8 and failed to birdie the par-5 ninth, the easiest hole at Waialae.

Thomas had four bogeys, three of which were sandwiched in between one more birdie and an eagle to close out the round.

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.

"To shoot 7 under back-to-back is unexpected, but awfully excited", Kuchar said with the same smile he wears for most any occasion.

Joey Garber hit 10 of 18 greens in regulation during his third round at the Sony Open in Hawaii, finishing at 4 over for the tournament. But, Kuchar closed out the front nine with two birdies in the pair's last three holes.

"I loved the fight", Spieth said.

Five-time PGA Tour victor Hideki Matsuyama is 10 shots off the lead, tied for 35th, after also shooting a 3-under 67.

The 25-year-old won the Memorial Tournament, the Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship in 2018, and moved up 30 places after mixing just one bogey with eight birdies, including three in a row on the way back to the clubhouse.

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

AUSTRALIAN golfer Marc Leishman has stormed up the leaderboard to be in a tie for fifth after a second-round 64 at the PGA Tour's Sony Open in Hawaii, but former world No.1s Adam Scott and Jordan Spieth have missed the cut. "Still played a good round".
