Leish­man third at Sony Open

Mercury (Hobart) - - SPORT -

MARC Leish­man has surged to a tie for third place as Amer­i­can vet­eran Matt Kuchar ex­tended his US PGA Tour ca­reer resur­gence with a dom­i­nant vic­tory at the Sony Open in Hon­olulu.

Kuchar, 40, claimed his sec­ond win of the sea­son – the ninth of his ca­reer – when he over­came a shaky start to post a clos­ing four-un­der-par 66 and fin­ish at 22-un­der 258, four shots clear of An­drew Put­nam (68). Leish­man started the fi­nal day seven shots be­hind leader Kuchar but posted a flaw­less six-un­der to be a shot fur­ther back.
