It wasn't as easy as his four-shot victory over Andrew Putnam might indicate.
Matt Kuchar has extended his lead at the Sony Open in Honolulu adding a third round of 66 to lead Andrew Putnam by two and the rest of the field by at least four as the event heads into tomorrow's final round. He caught Putnam on the next hole with an aggressive pitch-and-run up the slope.
Kuchar was in trouble early with bogeys on three of his first five holes.
The 40-year-old is also trying to win for the second time this season after capturing the Mayakoba Golf Classic in November.
Mauricio Pochettino salutes Tottenham's 'best performance' in loss to Manchester United
United were deeper in the second half, but to play against that system it was fantastic to create 11 chances in the second half. It can be argued that, although he was impressive, none of the saves De Gea had to make on Sunday were particularly hard .
The win for Kuchar came amid Saturday-night allegations from current PGA Tour Champions player Tom Gillis, who tweeted that Kuchar paid a local fill-in caddie just $3,000 for his Mayakoba win. Now, he has the meat of the season in front of him.
Kuchar matched the lowest 36-hole score of his PGA Tour career.
Even so, the performance was big for the Listowel, Ont., native, who narrowly missed a full PGA Tour card previous year. "They may always be there, but you get more comfortable with it".
Australia's Marc Leishman finished in a four-way tie for third place at 17 under with Canada's Corey Conners and Americans Hudson Swafford and Chez Reavie.

Emery admits Arsenal can only afford loan signings in January
Speaking the reporters ahead of Saturday's trip to West Ham , Emery said: "I don't know about his situation". And, Unai Emery will be relieved to have a number of players returning to his squad this week.
The four-time Ryder Cup team member won a bronze medal for the U.S. at the 2016 Summer Olympics.
He won again in Mexico in a Sunday much tighter than he would have preferred, and had a few nervous moments at the start at Waialae. Putnam briefly held the lead in the final round and finished solo second at 18 under.
He has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae Country Club, and his 18-under 192 was the lowest 54-hole score of his career.
The three-times major champion, speaking to himself constantly as per usual, gave himself a chance of qualifying for the weekend when he birdied the 15th and 16th, but a missed 10-footer at the penultimate hole cost him dearly.
Kuchar started to get his round going with a birdie on No. 9. Putnam went first and it rolled out to 2 inches for birdie. Kuchar followed with 12-foot birdie putts on the next two holes, and he was on his way to his ninth career victory.
Freddie Kitchens has 'good chance' of being next Browns coach
Kitchens was a condition of employment for Browns candidates, or at least McCarthy, and they may have dodged a bullet. The job has been open since late October, when Kitchens was first made play-caller and the Browns were limping along.
Both courses require keeping the ball in play, and Kuchar has done that well over three rounds. "I'm sure when I think about it. a lot of good things have happened".
