HONOLULU -- If the winner of the Sony Open in Hawaii is the guy who'll make the most birdies, you might want to keep an eye on Brendon de Jonge.
Since 2009, no player on the PGA TOUR has made more birdies than de Jonge. During that stretch, he's carded 1,163 birdies -- 45 more than his closest competitor in that category, Bo Van Pelt.
"I've always been a guy that's made a fair few birdies," de Jonge said. "I go at a lot of flags. At times I'll make a lot of soft bogeys because of that."
If he can avoid those soft bogeys, de Jonge could be in great shape on Sunday to make a run at his first PGA TOUR win.
Brendon de Jonge and Doug LaBelle II tee off at 6:10 p.m. ET. Click here to follow their round on ShotTracker
