Kooch Leads Putnam by 2 Shots at Waialae

Danny Lee has made the cut in his first tournament of the year

"Boy, to win two out of three events - it's insane to comprehend", said Kuchar, who missed the Tour Championship last year for the first time in eight years but has now taken his tally of US PGA Tour titles to nine.

The victor of the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico in November, world No.32 Kuchar briefly surrendered the lead to Putnam after three bogeys in his first five holes on Sunday.

Winning the Mayakoba ended a long winless drought that stretched back to 2014. Kuchar denied the number after the third round and said the two had an agreement in place at the start of the week.

Kuchar, 40, claimed his second win of the season - the ninth of his career - when he overcame a shaky start to post a closing four-under-par 66 and finish at 22-under 258, four shots clear of countryman Andrew Putnam (68). Now, he has the meat of the season in front of him.

"I tell people that nerves in golf are kind of like public speaking", Kuchar said.

"It's such a special thing for me".

"So now being in good shape, it's certainly a nice place to be". The Aussie went bogey-free around Waialae, making three birdies on each side to equal his low round of the week and tie for low honors on the day. I love golf. Grade: A+. It's a challenging one.

'Legend' Murray can be proud of achievements - Federer
Murray, 31 , struggled to share the news at the Australian Open in Melbourne , which he withdrew from a year ago due to injury. If I am able to make that happen in a good way, that hopefully it will give me the chance to help me on my game longer term.

"It was a really good day", said Kuchar, who has won eight times on the PGA Tour.

Matt Jones improved with his round of 67 to be in 27th place and shares that place with the only other Australian to make the weekend Cameron Smith who dropped 15 places with his round of 69. The Tour rookie is tied for 20th with a five-under 135 total.

"For not playing well at all and being on the bad end of the draw, to miss the cut by one is reassuring", Spieth said.

Fellow American Chez Reavie is outright third after picking up four shots while Keith Mitchell is a shot further back after gaining six shots.

Putnam, playing in the afternoon, had a bogey-free 65 and was one shot behind.

Sabbatini, whose wife is from Slovakia, became a naturalised citizen last week, and hopes to play for that country in the 2020 Olympics in Japan. He finished top five in both events, and following his win last fall at the CIMB Classic should be considered one of the players best positioned to break into the upper crust of golf as we head toward the heart of the season. The 16-year-old American placed last after shooting rounds of 84 and 78.
