HONOLULU/January 13, 2018 (AP)(STL.News) —A false missile alert didn’t bother Tom Hoge, and he was just as steady on the golf course Saturday in his round of 6-under 64 to take a one-shot lead at the Sony Open.
Hoge got up-and-down from 40 yards away for birdie on the par-5 18th to take his first 54-hole lead on the PGA Tour.
If there was uncertainty about the push alert in Hawaii about an incoming ballistic missile, a different variety awaits on Sunday. No one can be sure what to expect in a final round with so many players in contention.
Hoge was at 16-under 194 and was one shot ahead of Mayakoba winner Patton Kizzire (64) and Brain Harman (68).
Kyle Stanley shot 65 and was another shot back.
