Lahiri's only birdie of the day came on ninth when he landed his third shot to seven feet and holed it for a birdie.

The 26-year-old Imahira, who carded an eagle on the par-5 18th, finished the day in a tie for seventh with Hudson Swafford of the United States. "I wanted to do better on the back nine", said Imahira, whose second round also included a bogey on No. 2.

Keith Mitchell and Chez Reavie are tied for 3rd five shots from the lead and it would appear that those further back would need a little help from Kuchar and something special themselves tomorrow if they are to have any chance of catching the 40 year old.

No one had a more memorable round than Reavie.

Svensson carded a nine-under-par 61 - highlighted by seven birdies and one eagle - to top the leaderboard at Wai'alae Country Club in Honolulu on Thursday. Reavie didn't think all that much about it until he piped a drive on No. 8 and hit a wedge that covered the flag. "If you play well, you can make birdies", Kuchar said.

They were also treated at the hospital, the chief said, adding they were released and are in good condition. On Sunday, multiple people were reportedly injured after shots were fired at a downtown Phoenix Hotel.

Kuchar held the halfway lead after a pair of 63s, and he made another positive start to the third round as he rolled in a confident 13-foot putt for an opening birdie before settling for a series of pars. Never expected it to go in. Lahiri bogeyed the 460-yard par-4 sixth, as he landed on the green in 2 and three-putting, moving him to one-over for the round. "It is the golf I like to play to stay out of trouble", he said.

Cink made nine birdies in his round of 62. (68) and Marc Leishman (68) are also in the bunch at 11-under.

Kuchar sometimes comes to Hawaii with his wife and two kids even when he's not playing golf. Love is not playing next week on the Big Island because he is playing the Singapore Open.

In November, he ended a four-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico on another course that requires keeping the ball in play off the tee for good chances to score.

Kuchar has been one of the most consistent players on the Tour over the past few years, finishing in the top 20 in FedEx Cup standings in 2017, 2016 and 2015. He felt as though he was grinding too hard, and that's not a trait he wears well.
