Kuchar extends lead at Sony Open

"Good, steady golf, " Kuchar said.

Beneath that cap is plenty of gray hair.

Putnam remained Kuchar's closest challenger after a 67 which included three birdies over the first five holes, although bogeys at the eighth and 16th ultimately cost him his chance to share the lead overnight. It's not often you're in full control.

Putnam, who won for the first time a year ago in the Barracuda Championship held opposite a World Golf Championship, did his best to stay in reach.

Kuchar has also been in fine form after ending a three-year title drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico late last year. "It felt easy out there". Putnam missed an 8-foot birdie attempt on No. 18.

In the third round of the 2019 Sony Open in Hawaii, Matt Kuchar carded a clean 4-under 66 to get to 18-under for the tournament and grab a two-stroke lead over the field heading into Sunday.

However Kuchar has gained three shots through 11 holes to be 17 under and he leads by two strokes from Andrew Putman, while several other players are making big moves on the Waialae Country Club course. You don't get many chances like that and it was nice to be there and been able to finish it off. ... There are a lot of good players out there.

The Ryder Cup star was joined in the tie for fifth by 54-year-old veteran Davis Love III, who birdied three of the last four holes to return a classy 64 which matched the score of in-form playing-partner Charles Howell III. He didn't make any, but he didn't leave himself any work for par.

Mitchell played a bogey-free round of 63, including four straight birdies on Nos. "If it's like today, it's going to be scorable".

The 25-year-old won the Memorial Tournament, the Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship in 2018, and moved up 30 places after mixing just one bogey with eight birdies, including three in a row on the way back to the clubhouse. 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.
