Kuchar shoots bogey-free 66 to hold Sony Open lead

"It was odd", the 37-year-old American told Golf Channel at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, where he trailed leader Matt Kuchar by four shots.

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

Spieth, who was making his 2019 debut, shot a 66 and Johnson had a 68 as they finished with a one-under 139 total.

Matt Kuchar went bogey-free again to earn a two-stroke lead over Andrew Putnam after the third round at the Sony Open in Hawaii Saturday.

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. But, Kuchar closed out the front nine with two birdies in the pair's last three holes. 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.

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

Kuchar matched the lowest 36-hole score of his PGA Tour career.

Putnam carded three birdies through the first five holes to have a one-shot lead. "Still got a chance".

Bryson DeChambeau leapfrogged 30 spots into T5, at 11-under with Corey Conners, Davis Love III, Charles Howell III, Dominic Bozzelli, Brian Stuard, Hudson Swafford, Ted Potter Jr. and Marc Leishman.

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

"It was awfully steady, bogey free, the kind of golf I like to play, give yourself enough opportunities, enough will go in". 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. He has been to five of the islands, and plans to stay another few weeks after the Sony Open.

The 37-year-old Reavie entered the Open's second round four strokes behind the lead and, in 15 of the 18 holes he played Friday, didn't do much to bridge the gap.
