Matt Kuchar takes one-shot lead over Andrew Putnam at Sony Open

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.

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.

Matt Kuchar has extended his lead at the Sony Open in Honolulu adding a third round of 66 to lead Andrew Putnam by two and the rest of the field by at least four as the event heads into tomorrow's final round.

His only birdie of the day came on the ninth hole, where he landed his third shot to seven feet and holed it for a birdie.

Thomas had four bogeys, three of which were sandwiched in between one more birdie and an eagle to close out the round.

American Putnam has sole possession of second place following his first-round 62 at the PGA Tour tournament, while Matt Kuchar (63) is a stroke further back. Jordan Spieth had a short week despite a 66 in second round and missed the cut by one shot. Needing to birdie the last four holes to qualify for the weekend, Spieth ran off two birdies, missed a 10-foot birdie putt and then narrowly missed chipping in for eagle.

"Last year I probably ground harder than I've done in the past", he said. Those were the only players within five shots of the lead, and all of them are chasing Kuchar. "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. He would only make one more birdie (at No. 12), but no bogeys ensured he kept pushing forward. "I didn't find myself in any trouble".
