HONOLULU – As Johnson Wagner birdied the par-4 15th, Harrison Frazar had to settle for par at the par-5 18th. That two-shot swing should give Wagner enough of a comfort zone down the stretch at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
Wagner is at 13 under, and his closest competitor still on the course is playing partner Charles Howell III, who is at 10 under.
Of the players immediately behind Wagner on the leaderboard – Carl Pettersson, Sean O’Hair and Harrison Frazar – all three are already in the clubhouse at 11 under.
Matt Every, one of the co-leaders after 54 holes, is 9 under through 14 holes.
