Fellow American Kuchar fell back to second at 17-under with three bogeys and two birdies after nine holes. Reavie had five birdies through nine holes but after he made the turn, his scorecard was colored with three consecutive bogeys.

Kuchar added birdies at 10, 12, 15, 16 and the par-five 18th to seal the win as Putnam, who was tied for the lead after a birdie at 13, bogeyed 14 from a bunker on the way to a two-under 68 for solo second on 262.

He closed with a 68 and moved into the top 50 for the first time in his career. He won the Match Play Championship and the Memorial in 2013. "I have to stay aggressive".

The win for Kuchar came amid Saturday-night allegations from current PGA Tour Champions player Tom Gillis, who tweeted that Kuchar paid a local fill-in caddie just $3,000 for his Mayakoba win. Kuchar is en route for his second victory of the ongoing season on the PGA TOUR, having ended a three-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico earlier this season.

"I love the golf course".

"I want to see how great this year can be", Kuchar said.

Addressing the cameras, Israel said he is eager to get his job back to build upon his accomplishments and "complete the mission". He failed to protect Floridians and visitors during the tragic Fort Lauderdale International Airport shooting in 2017 .


Even so, the performance was big for Conner, who narrowly missed a full PGA Tour card a year ago. What's wild that Reavie now has the most eagles on par 4s since the beginning of last season, according to the PGA Tour, and he got half of them in one round.

Justin Thomas - the 2017 champion - did not have much luck late, but when it did come it was certainly exciting following three-under-par 67. Obviously a year ago was disappointing, but to win two out of three events is insane to comprehend.

He'll be very comfortable over the next few weeks, remaining in Hawaii with his family for a two-week vacation.

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.

Indian golfer Anirban Lahiri ended with a one-over 71 in the third round of the Sony Open in Honolulu, Hawaii, which saw him drop to three-under 207 for a tied-63rd spot on Saturday. But the veteran steadied himself down the stretch, racing past Putnam with a flurry of four birdies in seven holes on the back nine.
