Stuard leads by one shot after latest 65 at Waialae

January 11, 2014
By DOUG FERGUSON , The Associated Press

HONOLULU - Brian Stuard had his fourth consecutive round of 65 at the Sony Open. Too bad it was only Friday.

Stuard completed his second round with an eagle on the par-5 ninth hole at Waialae Country Club for a 5-under 65 that gave him a one-shot lead over Marc Leishman and Hideto Tanihara.

Stuard, a 31-year-old who is in his third year on the PGA Tour, was at 10-under 130.

He had a 65-65 weekend at Waialae last year to tie for fifth, his best finish on tour outside of "opposite-field" events, and has seven straight rounds in the 60s at Waialae dating to his first trip in 2010.

"I think it's something to do with the greens," Stuard said. "I feel comfortable on the greens. I feel like I read them pretty well and I'm able to make putts."

Leishman also made an eagle on the ninth hole, which was in the middle of his round and part of a three-hole stretch he played in 4 under.
