Matt Kuchar leads Sony Open by two shots after 54 holes

Kuchar has dropped only one shot in 54 holes

Swafford got off to a slow start but heated up with four birdies in a seven-hole stretch to entertain thoughts of potentially chasing down Kuchar and Putnam.

He'll go into Sunday's final round at 18-under 192 with a two-shot edge on Andrew Putnam, whose strong start allowed him to tie for the lead early in the third round. Putnam went first and it rolled out to 2 inches for birdie. Obviously a year ago was disappointing, but to win two out of three events is insane to comprehend.

"I found some good stuff between seasons ... and then things really heated up in Mexico", he said.

Keith Mitchell and Chez Reavie are tied for 3rd five shots from the lead and it would appear that those further back would need a little help from Kuchar and something special themselves tomorrow if they are to have any chance of catching the 40 year old.

"If you play well, you can make birdies", Kuchar said.

Mitchell raced up the leaderboard with five birdies in six holes around the turn before he added another at 18 to close on 14 under before Reavie, who had stormed to the turn in 30, recovered from three consecutive bogeys with birdies at 16 and 18 to join Mitchell in third place.

"It's not often you feel like you know what you're doing with your swing and the ball's reacting the way you want it to and you're able to maneuver the ball the way you want", Kuchar told reporters. "Still played a good round".

Bryson DeChambeau had a 63 and led a large pack at 11-under 199, seven shots out of the lead for a slim chance at winning unless the leaders come back to the field. He didn't make any, but he didn't leave himself any work for par.

Veteran Kuchar has a career-best 54-hole score in Hawaii as the American tries to win for the ninth time on the US PGA Tour.

"It was awfully steady, bogey free, the kind of golf I like to play, give yourself enough opportunities, enough will go in". "I have to stay aggressive".

Lahiri, who is playing his first event of 2019, is now four-under 136. Love is not playing next week on the Big Island because he is playing the Singapore Open.
