Matt Kuchar Extends Lead At Sony Open

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

This time, he wouldn't let go, with three birdies over his final four holes to emphatically seal a four-shot victory.

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. Tied for the lead with five holes to go, Putnam made bogey from the bunker on No. 14 and Kuchar birdied the next two holes to seize control. Swafford got off to a slow start but heated up with four birdies in a seven-hole stretch to entertain thoughts of potentially chasing down Kuchar and Putnam. It was only the second time in his career Kuchar has won twice in the same season.

Putnam, playing in the afternoon, had a bogey-free 65 and was one shot behind. That's the way I like to play, staying out of trouble.

"It was a really good day", said Kuchar, who has won eight times on the PGA Tour.

Overlooked for last year's U.S. Ryder Cup team after an inconsistent summer, he hit the ground running in the new season and a win at the Mayakoba Classic in November, the eighth of his career, ended a five-year victory drought. Putnam missed an 8-foot birdie attempt on No. 18. He said. a lot of different things over three days of interviews, none of which were particularly encouraging.

"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". Along with his runner-up finish in the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall, he has almost as many FedEx Cup points as previous year when he finished at No. 130. "Still played a good round".

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.

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. "I have to stay aggressive".

The Sony Open is more about work than play, and he's having just as much fun.

It was all over when Matt Kuchar walked in his 11-foot birdie putt Sunday on the 16th green at Waialae Country Club.
