Hot Harman up by 3 at Sony


    Brian Harman teed off today on the first hole with playing partner Billy Hurley III.


    John Oda hit on the 10th hole during the second round of today’s 2018 Sony Open.

Brian Harman continued his hot run that began last week on Maui with a 7-under 63 today to drop to 13-under 127 to lead the Sony Open in Hawaii by three shots over five golfers, including 2009 champion Zach Johnson (67).

Joining Johnson in a tie for second at 10-under 130 are Chris Kirk (67) — who began the day with an eagle at the par-4 10th and ended it with a bogey at the par-5 ninth — Talor Gooch (66), Tom Hoge (65) and journeyman John Peterson (64). Peterson is on a medical exemption and has eight tournaments to earn $350,000 to remain on the PGA Tour.

World No. 2 Jordan Spieth flirted with the cut line of minus 2 all day before securing a spot on the weekend with a birdie at the last. He finished with a 2-under 68 to begin Saturday’s round at 3 under for the tournament, some 10 shots off the pace. Joining him will be good friend and defending champion Justin Thomas, who secured back-to-back 67s to be 6 under for the tournament.

Harman entered the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions paired with eventual winner Dustin Johnson. He trailed the No. 1 player by two shots on Sunday. Harman closed with a 72 to finish alone in third behind Johnson and Jon Rahm.

Moanalua alum John Oda eagled his final hole to just make the cut at minus 2. He shot a 70 today and will make his first weekend appearance in three Sony Open appearances. Tyler Ota, also a Moanalua alum, shot a 74 to finish at 4-over 144.

Eric Dugas of Makena Golf and Beach Club carded his second round of 1-over 71 to finish his week at 2 over.
