It was a hard day for 11-time PGA Tour champion Spieth, who had four bogeys and just one birdie to be tied for 127th and 12 shots off the pace. It's not often you're in full control.

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

Kuchar started to get his round going with a birdie on No. 9. Putnam briefly held the lead in the final round and finished solo second at 18 under. It's the second win of the season for Kuchar, who also won at Mayakoba in the fall, and the ninth of his PGA Tour career.

It wasn't as easy as his four-shot victory over Andrew Putnam might indicate.

"Last year I probably ground harder than I've done in the past", he said. Kuchar has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae, and he only came seriously close to one bogey until saving par from a bunker on the par-3 17th.

Kuchar was flawless on day three, posting four birdies without dropping a shot, to be the 54-hole leader at 18 under. Jordan Spieth had a short week despite a 66 in second round and missed the cut by one shot.

Nationals sign Brian Dozier to one-year, $9 million contract
He could be a nice bounce-back candidate with the Nationals though considering he hit a combined 76 home runs in 2016 and 2017. On Thursday, Rizzo made another shrewd move in agreeing to a one-year deal with second baseman Brian Dozier .


"I was trying to think back to any round I even had more than one hole-out and I couldn't think of any", Reavie said after signing for a 5-under 65 that leaves him 10 under for the week and four off the pace. 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. He said. a lot of different things over three days of interviews, none of which were particularly encouraging. "Still played a good round. They may always be there, but you get more comfortable with it".

In-form Bryson DeCambeau posted a seven-under 63 to be sharing sixth place with Leishman and three others.

Also tied for fifth were Charles Howell III and 54-year-old Davis Love III, who had one of his better putting rounds. He didn't make any, but he didn't leave himself any work for par.

But Kuchar edged back in front when he pitched to three feet to set up a birdie at 10 before holing from 10 feet at the 12th, although Putnam then regained a share of the lead with a clutch 20-foot putt for birdie at the 13th. It was nice to have that pressure and be able to come through and make some birdies coming. Yuki Inamori is one stroke further back after carding a 68, while Rikuya Hoshino just made the cut at 2-under, following up his opening round of 66 with a 2-over 72. His 64-65 weekend gave him a tie for seventh, and he now heads off to Singapore with hopes of earning a spot in the British Open.
