Brandt Snedeker sets the target at Waialae
HONOLULU (AP) Brandt Snedeker feels good about his swing and is making plenty of putts, a combination that has given him the 36-hole lead at the Sony Open.
Snedeker played bogey-free Friday at Waialae Country Club for a 5-under 65. He had a one-shot lead over Kevin Kisner, who couldn't get a putt to fall until a 12-footer he made on his final hole for eagle and a 66.
Snedeker was at 12-under 128.
Fifteen players were separated by only four shots at the halfway point. British Open champion Zach Johnson and Luke Donald were among four players who were two shots behind. The group at 9-under 131 included 49-year-old Jerry Kelly.
Vijay Singh, who turns 53 next month and can become the oldest PGA Tour winner in history, shot 69 and was four back.
