HONOLULU – Less than an hour into Friday’s second round, Graham DeLaet suffered back-to-back double bogeys and found himself seven shots off the lead.
It was a quick turn of events for the guy who woke up in the morning holding the lead at a PGA TOUR event for the first time in his career.
The 29-year-old Canadian shot a 2-over 72 on Friday to drop to 5 under for the tournament. That leaves him tied for 17th entering Saturday’s third round.
Starting his round on the 10th hole, DeLaet doubled the par-3 11th after an errant tee shot to the right. He again found trouble off the tee at the par-4 12th and had trouble hacking his way out of the rough.
From there, DeLaet was 2 under the rest of the way but the damage had been done.
