Kuchar shoots bogey-free 66 to hold Sony Open lead

Kuchar shoots bogey-free 66 to hold Sony Open lead

It took a while for Matt Kuchar to disentangle himself from a suddenly-crowded Sony Open leaderboard on Sunday, but when he finally put the hammer down, he did so emphatically and cruised to his second victory of the still-very-young 2018-19 PGA Tour season.

After losing his two-stroke advantage after the fourth hole, Kuchar kicked things into high gear by birding six of his final 10 holes to finish off a four-under-par 66 that took him to 22-under at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu.

Kuchar has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae Country Club, and his 18-under 192 was the lowest 54-hole score of his career.

At the 477-yard par-4 13th, the Indian's tee shot went 269 yards to the right rough, his second shot went 180 yards to the right front greenside bunker, and his sand shot went 29 yards to the green where he secured a two-putt for a bogey.

He closed with a 68 and moved into the top 50 for the first time in his career.

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. "I just couldn't keep up with him".

He reportedly became the sales director of Huawei in Poland sometime in 2017 with an emphasis on sales "in the public sector". A Huawei employee was arrested in Poland on Tuesday and charged with spying for China , according to numerous media reports.

Canada's Corey Conners, who got into the field through a Monday qualifier, had a 64-64 weekend and was among four players who tied for third, though none had a serious chance of challenging what amounted to a two-player race at the top.

Kuchar ended a four-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico last fall, and there are a few similarities.

"I love the golf course". "I also love the way we fought back there at the end". With no bogeys on his card, it even felt easy to him. 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. He finished with a 3-under 67 for a tournament total of 16 under. He joins Xander Schauffle in the two-win club for this season and now has almost eight months to notch the first three-win season of his long, consistent and successful career.

Putnam, playing in the afternoon, had a bogey-free 65 and was one shot behind.

Marc Leishman (64), Hudson Swafford (64) and Chez Reavie (67) also finished in a tie for third. He used eight birdies to complete the feat, including three on his final seven holes.
