Kuchar starts Hawaii vacation with a victory

Kuchar birdied his first three holes on his way to a second straight seven-under-par 63 at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. It hopped into the back bunker, and he missed an 8-foot par putt to lose the lead. Five 3s in your first seven holes on the back nine with the tournament in the balance is a nice way to close a two-week stay in Hawaii.

Just like that, his lead was three shots, making for a pleasant walk up the par-5 18th. He maintained his lead through the back nine as Putnam began to trail by more with a bogey on the par-4 16th.

"Apparently, I need to go buy a lottery ticket today", Reavie said. He was battling me.

"Kuch is playing well, so I feel like I've got to get out there and make some birdies if it's not too windy", Putnam said. I've never had a cushion like this coming down the last. Thomas posted a 66 on Sunday and has now shot 68 or lower in 12 consecutive rounds at Waialae. It was a master class in lapping the field early and defending his turf late. He holed out for eagle three times from the fairway - a sand wedge from 101 yards on No. 10 at the start of his round; a 9-iron from 149 yards on No. 16, and a gap wedge from 135 yards on No. 6.

The only other time Kuchar won twice in the same season was in 2013, when he won the Match Play Championship in Arizona in February and the Memorial in early June.

Kuchar, who won the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November, took home the $1.152 million winner's check with his ninth career PGA Tour victory and is the second multiple-time victor on Tour this season. "To win two out of three is insane to comprehend".
