Kuchar Extends Lead At Sony Open In Hawaii

Kuchar Extends Lead At Sony Open In Hawaii

After shooting 67 on Thursday, Leishman fired a six-under-par 64 (131) on Saturday (AEST) 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.

Kuchar has been one of the steadiest golfers on the tour this season and said the key for him is keeping the ball in play and limiting his mistakes.

Corey Conners of Listowel, Ont., is the top Canadian after three rounds.

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.

The four-time Ryder Cup team member won a bronze medal for the United States of America at the 2016 Summer Olympics. But he had a good session with his swing coach in Dallas, and it paid off two weeks later on the Gulf side of the Mexican coast. Putnam missed an 8-foot birdie attempt on No. 18.

Bryson DeChambeau produced arguably the round of the day, matching his career-low 63 to sit tied among a nine-strong pack in fifth place on 11 under.

DeChambeau's round jumped him up into a nine-way tie for fifth place at 11 under, alongside the likes of Marc Leishman (68) and Charles Howell III (64).

Kuchar was at his best on a number of putts from the 50-foot range. That added to the stress-free feeling of a round, and the overall control he feels in his game. I've been through it.
