The 25-year-old won the Memorial Tournament, the Northern Trust and the Dell Technologies Championship in 2018, and moved up 30 places after mixing just one bogey with eight birdies, including three in a row on the way back to the clubhouse.

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.

Matt Kuchar recovered from a poor start to cruise to his second victory of the PGA Tour season by four shots at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Kuchar ended a four-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico last fall, and there are a few similarities.

"Didn't feel as easy as the first two days, " Putnam said. If I keep plugging along, I knew good things would happen. Just needed to make some better swings.

Putnam, who won for the first time past year in the Barracuda Championship held opposite a World Golf Championship, did his best to stay in reach.

The easygoing vibe in Hawaii is a flawless fit for Matt Kuchar, who spends as much as a month at a time on the islands when his schedule allows.

Buyers will also have the choice to opt for alloy wheels ranging from 16in to 19in. Overall, the vehicle is 48mm longer than before, and the cabin is 50mm wider.

"Apparently, I need to go buy a lottery ticket today", Reavie said. "I look forward to the rest of the year to try and continue to see how great this year can be".

He finished at 22-under 258, the third-lowest total in Waialae history behind the PGA Tour record of 253 by Justin Thomas in 2017 and Jimmy Walker's 72-hole score of 257 when he won in 2015.

Peter Jung, who qualified by winning an amateur tournament, played in his first PGA Tour event.

Even so, the performance was big for Conner, who narrowly missed a full PGA Tour card past year.

Andrew Putnam finished four strokes back in second following his 68, while Marc Leishman (64), Hudson Swafford (64), Chez Reavie (67) and Corey Conners (64) all ended in a tie for third at 17-under. It was nice to have that pressure and be able to come through and make some birdies coming.

"For not playing well at all and being on the bad end of the draw, to miss the cut by one is reassuring", Spieth said. His 64-65 weekend gave him a tie for seventh, and he now heads off to Singapore with hopes of earning a spot in the British Open.

Putnam's birdie at the third and a series of solid pars proved enough to take him into the lead, which he maintained at the turn when he matched Kuchar's birdie at the long ninth. But, Kuchar closed out the front nine with two birdies in the pair's last three holes.
