Matt Kuchar remains in control and is the 54-hole leader (18 under) at the Sony Open in Hawaii after a handful of birdies helped him retake and maintain the lead.

Kuchar led by two overnight and had just one blemish on his scorecard over the first 54 holes, but his customary composure slipped early on the final day at Waialae Country Club as he endured a torrid run of three bogeys in four holes.

At the 477-yard par-4 13th, Lahiri's tee shot went 269 yards to the right rough, his second shot went 180 yards to the right front greenside bunker, and his sand shot went 29 yards to the green where he had a two-putt for a bogey.

Kuchar was sliding his way out of the top 50 toward the end of previous year, when he failed to make a Ryder Cup or Presidents Cup team for the first time since 2009.

"I just felt like I was seeing the line and speed really well", Putnam explained.

"I loved the fight", Spieth said.

- PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) January 13, 2019 " rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" tied his career low round of 63.

"It was awfully steady, bogey free, the kind of golf I like to play, give yourself enough opportunities, enough will go in". He won the Match Play Championship and the Memorial in 2013.

Peter Jung, who qualified by winning an amateur tournament, played in his first PGA Tour event. Along with his runner-up finish in the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall, he has almost as many FedEx Cup points as past year when he finished at No. 130.

Australian Marc Leishman had six birdies in a six-under 64 to share third place on 17-under 263 with Canadian Corey Conners and Americans Hudson Swafford and Chez Reavie.

Kuchar birdied six of his last 10 holes in a four-under par 66 at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, finishing the week with a 22-under par total of 258.

Love, who first played the Sony Open in 1986, missed by one shot matching the lowest 72-hole score of his career.

Kuchar had gone more than four years since his last PGA Tour victory before he won in Mexico.

Armed with a three-stroke advantage with just two holes remaining, Kuchar held firm and, after a cast-iron par at the penultimate hole, he completed a comprehensive win with his 24th birdie of the tournament at the 72nd hole.

Matt Kuchar made it look easy Saturday in the Sony Open. Kuchar walked in a birdie putt on the par-4 15th, and with Putnam in trouble on the par-4 16th, Kuchar put his approach to 11 feet.
