Kuchar leads Sony Open by two shots

Matt Kuchar went more than four years without a victory before winning the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November and now he's looking for more.

Main storyline heading into Sunday: Since 2011, five players have opened a PGA Tour event with consecutive rounds of 63 or better.

Fellow American Chez Reavie is outright third after picking up four shots while Keith Mitchell is a shot further back after gaining six shots.

Matt Kuchar went bogey-free again to earn a two-stroke lead over Andrew Putnam after the third round at the Sony Open in Hawaii Saturday.

The 37-year-old Reavie entered the Open's second round four strokes behind the lead and, in 15 of the 18 holes he played Friday, didn't do much to bridge the gap.

Lahiri could not complain about the quality of his hitting as he hit 11 of 14 fairways and 14 of 18 greens in regulation, but also missed a lot of putts.

The easygoing vibe in Hawaii is a flawless fit for Matt Kuchar, who spends as much as a month at a time on the islands when his schedule allows.

"I loved the fight", Spieth said.

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. "To shoot seven-under back-to-back is unexpected, but certainly awfully exciting", said Kuchar, who finished his front nine by making an eagle on the par-five hole.

Five-time PGA Tour victor Hideki Matsuyama is 10 shots off the lead, tied for 35th, after also shooting a 3-under 67.

Kuchar held the halfway lead after a pair of 63s, and he made another positive start to the third round as he rolled in a confident 13-foot putt for an opening birdie before settling for a series of pars.

No one had a more memorable round than Reavie.

"I anticipate needing another good round tomorrow", he said. "Still played a good round".

Clearly, the 40-year-old is in a better spot than when he had gone more than three years without winning and was left off the Ryder Cup team for the first time in 10 years.
