Matt Kuchar takes two-shot lead into final round of Sony Open

Chez Reavie

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.

The only other time Kuchar won twice in the same season was in 2013, when he won the Match Play Championship in Arizona in February and the Memorial in early June.

Kuchar ran off four birdies in five holes to start his second round on Friday, handled the par 5s at Waialae again and finished with another round 63.

Matt Kuchar was model of consistency, shooting a bogey-free 66 Saturday in the third round of the PGA Tour's Sony Open to stretch his lead to two strokes over Andrew Putnam. 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.

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

"Good, steady golf", Kuchar said.

Meanwhile, Canadian rookie Adam Svensson, who opened with a 61 to take a first-round lead Thursday, followed with a 74 to fall nine shots behind American Matt Kuchar.

Under the circumstances, he might have had reason to be slightly disappointed with a five-under-par 65, which included a double-bogey, but was not complaining.

South African native Rory Sabbatini played his first event under the Slovakian flag, and shot a second round 67 to move to five-under overall, nine shots adrift of Kuchar.

In total, Reavie posted an incredible three eagles without attempting a putt in a single round, the most of any round on record on the PGA Tour.

Here you can find everything you need to stay up to date with the world's foremost golf tour. (68) and Marc Leishman (68) are also in the bunch at 11-under. - Love III, who made 91 feet, 3 inches of putts Saturday and received a nice compliment from his playing competitor.

Putnam stayed within striking distance without playing his best.

Clearly, the 40-year-old is in a better spot than when he had gone more than three years without winning and was left off the Ryder Cup team for the first time in 10 years.
