Snedeker sets the target at Sony Open

  • ASSOCIATED PRESS

    Brandt Snedeker waves to the gallery after making a birdie chip shot off the third green during the second round of the Sony Open golf tournament today at Waialae.

Brandt Snedeker had a 5-under 65 and never came seriously close to a bogey today to build a one-shot lead midway through the second round of the Sony Open.

Snedeker, playing Waialae for the first time in eight years, was at 12-under 128.

He played the opening two rounds with Kevin Kisner, who didn’t see enough putts go in until the last hole. Kisner rolled in a 12-foot eagle putt for a 66.

British Open champion Zach Johnson had a 66 and was two shots behind, followed by Scott Piercy (66) another stroke back. The top four players on the leaderboard all started the year at Kapalua last week.

Vijay Singh, who turns 53 next month and is trying to become the oldest PGA Tour winner, played in the afternoon.
