Gary Woodland birdies his way into lead at Kapalua Gary Woodland chips in for the first of five straight birdies on the back nine and posts another 6-under 67 for a three-shot lead going into the weekend at the Sentry Tournament of Champions. None of his birdie putts were longer than 10 feet, which helped.

HONOLULU — Two years ago, Chez Reavie was chasing 59 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii before he settled for a 61. This time, he succeeded in adding his name to the record book, albeit for a different reason.

Friday at Waialae Country Club, Reavie holed out for eagle three times, becoming the first player to do so on three par-4s in the same round since the PGA Tour started keeping track in 1983.

“I was trying to think back to any round I even had more than one hole-out and I couldn't think of any,” the 37-year-old journeyman said.

He didn’t take long to make the first one, jarring a sand wedge from 101 yards on the par-4 10th, his first hole of the day. Six holes later he made another, from 149 yards with a 9-iron.

The momentum didn’t last long, though, with Reavie making bogey on the par-4 first and double at the par-3 fourth after missing the green left and blasting his sand shot across the green, prompting him to change balls.

You can guess what happened next. Two holes later he holed a gap wedge from 135 yards, prompting two of the caddies in the group to throw their hats at him.

“The first one was great, the second was, wow, that’s cool, the third one was like, are you kidding me?” said playing partner Michael Thompson. “Pretty amazing to watch. The third time we gave him a hard time. Thats’ probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience to be in a group and see a guy do that, let alone do it yourself. It’s pretty cool to see.”

Kuchar leads Sony Open by 2 shots

Kuchar leads Sony Open by 2 shots Matt Kuchar kept another clean card and shot a 4-under 66 to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Sony Open as he goes for his second victory this season on the PGA Tour. Kuchar ended a three-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico last fall. He has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae Country Club, and his 18-under 192 was the lowest 54-hole score of his career. Andrew Putnam was two shots behind after a 67. Keith Mitchell had a 63 and was four behind, along with Chez Reavie (66). Those were the only players within five shots of the lead, and all of them are chasing Kuchar.
