The PGA Tour began keeping hole-by-hole records in 1983 and no one had made three eagles in one round on par fours since. He has made only one bogey through 54 holes, and he only came seriously close to one on Saturday, saving par from the bunker on the par-3 17th.

"It was not at all what I was looking for", Kuchar told the Golf Channel about his poor start.

Keith Mitchell had a 63 and was four shots behind, along with Chez Reavie (66).

"It was pretty tough to walk but obviously things worked out pretty well", he said.

Kuchar ended a almost five-year drought when he won the Mayakoba Classic in November, his eighth PGA Tour win, and he said it was a good recent experience to have in the memory bank.

Matt Kuchar, in some of the best form of his career at age 40, vaulted to the lead after the second round at the Sony Open in Hawaii on Friday.

Putnam carded three birdies through the first five holes to have a one-shot lead. It was nice to have that pressure and be able to come through and make some birdies coming. I'm awfully pleased with my game. It wasn't easy because it never is on the PGA Tour, but it was simple and as low-stress as wins get. He won the Match Play Championship and the Memorial in 2013.

According to the cops, the child was left outside by his mother who is suffering from some mental health issues. NOTE: Police first said the baby was a boy but later clarified that the child is actually a girl .

Australian world No.18 Leishman started the final day seven shots behind leader Kuchar but posted a flawless six-under 64 on the Waialae Country Club course to be a shot further back. They traded birdies on the 12th and 13th, and Kuchar took over from there. Obviously previous year was disappointing, but to win two out of three events is insane to comprehend. He finished top five in both events, and following his win last fall at the CIMB Classic should be considered one of the players best positioned to break into the upper crust of golf as we head toward the heart of the season.

He returns in two weeks at Torrey Pines.

Experience definitely counts for something and helps explain Davis Love III's solo seventh finish at age 54, his best result since his 2015 Wyndham Championship victory. But I enjoy the challenge even when you're not playing well of trying to figure out shooting a score.

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

"Just two great days".

"Honestly, I didn't think about it at all until after the third one went in", Reavie added.

He at least made the cut, more than could be said for Jordan Spieth, who missed by a stroke despite a 66 for one-under.
