Harman leads in Hawaii as Spieth steadies the ship

Harman leads in Hawaii as Spieth steadies the ship

Kirk grabbed an eagle at the 10th on his way to a three-under 67, while two-time major victor Johnson matched that round and like Harman, sank an eagle on the ninth. He added another birdie at the ninth, and after a near-miss at the 12th rolled in birdie putts of 24 feet and 21 feet at 13 and 14 to move within a stroke of the lead.

Harman entered the final round of the Sentry Tournament of Champions paired with eventual victor Dustin Johnson.

"I came here later than I anticipated - like four or five days later and I had zero expectations on my game", the 41-year-old said.

"I'm making putts, but I'm also putting myself in position to make those putts", Harman said.

"I had a great day today, and I'm about to go do it".

We've got a logjam atop the leaderboard with Vaughn Taylor, Kyle Stanley, Brian Harman and Talor Gooch T-2 at 6 under.




"I can't remember when, or if, I've ever made three eagles in a round but it was fun", said Grace, who eagled the second, eighth and 15th, all of them par fives.

Peterson opened with four straight birdies then picked up two more at seven and nine to make the turn at six-under then had two birdies and two bogeys coming in to sign for a 64.

But the shot of the day belonged to Jordan Spieth after he sank a 91ft putt on the par four fifth.

Japan's Daisuke Kataoka and Americans Peter Malnati, Matt Every and Tom Hoge all shot 65. His next three shots also hit trees before he found a greenside bunker.

Spieth, who had been favourite to win heading into the competition, managed a birdie on his final hole.

Defending champion Justin Thomas was closer to the cut line than the lead until he made a trio of 8-foot putts - two for birdies, one for eagle - to close out a 67.
