Eagle sees Harman take three-shot lead

14 Enero, 2018, 02:03 | Author: Thomas Hicks
  • Jordan Spieth was three off the lead until coming to grief at the eighth

It's the longest of his career per PGA Tour media, besting a 52-footer he made at the Valspar Championship in 2016.

Kirk, a four-time victor on the U.S. tour, nabbed five of his seven birdies on the back nine. He hit that out to 30 feet and two putts later had a snowman (8).

Elsewhere. South Africa's Branden Grace lived up to his billing as pre-tournament favourite by claiming a share of the lead after the first round of the BMW SA Open in Johannesburg. He added another birdie at the ninth, and after a near-miss at the 12th rolled in birdie putts of 24 feet and 21 feet at 13 and 14 to move within a stroke of the lead.

Brian Harman finds himself on the top of the tree in Honolulu after the second round - having been in a similar position in the Sentry Tournament of Champions on the islands last week.

"I came here later than I anticipated -like four or five days later and I had zero expectations on my game", the 41-year-old said. You get these - we've all had these rounds where we kind of get it going through nine, ten holes, but in order to keep that going and actually cap it off into a 59, I've never witnessed that in my life.

"Definitely an up and down day", Kirk said.

"I didn't feel like I deserved a pick by any means, and I would've been happy with one, but I didn't feel like I played well enough to make it where it was a snub by any means", Harman said on Friday.

"I had a great day today, and I'm about to go do it. It's laziness, I guess, not doing it consistently over the last couple of years".

Kirk was three behind along with Zach Johnson (67), John Peterson (64), Tom Hoge (65) and PGA Tour rookie Talor Gooch.

He made eight birdies and shot 69. He wound up with a quadruple-bogey 8, and even a pitch from the rough short of the ninth green that stopped inches away for birdie wasn't enough to appease him.

Spieth has recorded four straight top 10s in Hawaii, including a solo third here past year. His next three shots also hit trees before he found a greenside bunker. He needed a birdie on his final hole just to get under par for the round.

Thomas, the defending champion who broke the PGA Tour's scoring record past year, played in the afternoon.

Thomas had five-time major champion Phil Mickelson's former caddie, Jim "Bones" Mackay, on his bag since his usual looper was unavailable due to injury.
