Har­man seizes sec­ond round lead

The Freeman - - SPORTS -

LOSANGELES— Brian Har­man capped a seven-un­der par 63 with an ea­gle at his fi­nal hole Fri­day to seize a three-shot lead in the sec­ond round of the US PGA Tour's Sony Open in Hawaii.

Har­man, who has four top-10 fin­ishes in four starts in the US tour's 2017-18 sea­son, teed off early at Wa­ialae in Honolulu, and opened with back-to-back birdies at the 10th and 11th.

His six birdies on the day in­cluded three in a row at the sec­ond, third and fourth and he rolled in a 17-footer at the par-five ninth for an ea­gle that gave him a 13-un­der to­tal of 127.

"I'm mak­ing putts, but I'm also putting my­self in po­si­tion to make those putts," Har­man said. "I'm get­ting a bunch of looks. I'm not mak­ing ev­ery­thing I'm look­ing at, but I'm hit­ting a lot of good putts and made a few."

Overnight co-lead­ers Chris Kirk and Zach John­son were in a group shar­ing sec­ond place on 10-un­der par 130.

Kirk gave chase in the af­ter­noon, open­ing his round with an ea­gle at the 10th hole and clos­ing within one stroke be­fore set­tling for a three-un­der 67 that con­cluded with a bo­gey at the par-five ninth.

"Def­i­nitely an up and down day," Kirk said. "A few loose swings to­wards the end, un­for­tu­nately, but a lot of re­ally good ones as well."
