Leishman fifth as Kuchar leads in Hawaii

Chez Reavie

Matt Kuchar shot a 66 to add to his scores of 63-63, gaining a two stroke advantage over Andrew Putnam, who made 67.

The 40-year-old fired a flawless 4-under 66 on Saturday to reach 18 under and double his overnight lead to two heading into Sunday's final round.

A strong Sunday in Hawaii would make Kuchar a two-time victor on the 2018-19 PGA Tour season very quickly. But he had a good session with his swing coach in Dallas, and it paid off two weeks later on the Gulf side of the Mexican coast. 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.

Kooch, who opened with rounds of 63-63, stayed on track with three birdies on the front nine and carded a 54-hole score of 18-under 192.

New Beer Labels On Hold During Government Shutdown
The breweries can still sell new beers in the state, but they are missing out on out-of-state sales until the shutdown ends. Paul Gatza, director of the Brewers Association , estimates half of the craft breweries in the US are in a similar position.

"It was odd", the 37-year-old American told Golf Channel at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, where he trailed leader Matt Kuchar by four shots. What's wild that Reavie now has the most eagles on par 4s since the beginning of last season, according to the PGA Tour, and he got half of them in one round. "Still played a good round".

Bryson DeChambeau produced arguably the round of the day, matching his career-low 63 to sit tied among a nine-strong pack in fifth place on 11 under. Also tied for fifth were Charles Howell III and 54-year-old Davis Love III, who had one of his better putting rounds. He didn't make any, but he didn't leave himself any work for par.

He never looks to be under stress, though Kuchar says looks can be deceiving.

"I loved the fight", Spieth said. Those times you're not in full control, you're faced with a lot of situations where golf is going to find a way to stress you out and test you.

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. Keith Mitchell was on the cutline with three holes to play Friday.
