Kuchar top of Sony Open leaderboard after four birdies on day three

Keith Mitchell had a 63 and was four shots behind, along with Chez Reavie (66).

Kuchar has been one of the steadiest golfers on the tour this season and said the key for him is keeping the ball in play and limiting his mistakes.

"Last year I probably ground harder than I've done in the past", he said. Putnam missed an 8-foot birdie attempt on No. 18.

Peter Jung, who qualified by winning an amateur tournament, played in his first PGA Tour event.

Kooch, who opened with rounds of 63-63, stayed on track with three birdies on the front nine and carded a 54-hole score of 18-under 192.

The Australian shot a two-under 68 third round to get to 11-under at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu on Saturday. "I missed couple putts early but I was awfully steady, played bogey-free".

Kuchar ran off four birdies in five holes to start his second round Friday, handled the par 5s at Waialae again and finished with another round of 7-under 63 to take a one-shot lead over Andrew Putnam. But he had a good session with his swing coach in Dallas, and it paid off two weeks later on the Gulf side of the Mexican coast. "I wanted to do better on the back nine", said Imahira, whose second round also included a bogey on No. 2. "The other two, I just hit the shot I was trying to see and it was going at the hole".

"Honestly, I didn't think about it at all until after the third one went in", Reavie added.

"You hit good shots and you don't expect them to go in". For now, he has to figure out how to make up four shots on Kuchar. (68) and Marc Leishman (68) are also in the bunch at 11-under. But I enjoy the challenge even when you're not playing well of trying to figure out shooting a score.

Kuchar will aim for his second championship in about two months after winning the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November in Mexico.

Matt Kuchar continued to thrive in paradise on Saturday as the 40-year-old added to his advantage at the Sony Open. He felt as though he was grinding too hard, and that's not a trait he wears well.
