Sony Open in Hawaii, Day 2: Russell Henley takes three stroke lead


PGA TOUR 2022: The Sony Open in Hawaii, Waialae CC, 13-16 January: Day Two

Russell Henley (US) leads by three shots ahead of China's Haotong Li

From PGA TOUR Daily Wrap-up, by AP:

HONOLULU — Russell Henley set a strong target Friday in the Sony Open in Hawaii when he was 6 under over his final six holes and closed with a 30-foot eagle putt for a 7-under 63 and a three-shot lead among the early starters at Waialae.

So much of the morning was up for grabs after 18-hole leader Kevin Na began to fade, with as many as five players having at least a share of the lead.

Henley made the turn by holing a greenside bunker shot for eagle on the par-5 18th hole, only to miss the green long and into a back bunker for bogey on the toughest first hole.

And then he couldn't miss. He birdied both par 3s on the front nine from inside 10 feet, holed a pair of 12-foot birdie putts and finished with his eagle.  Read more

From Yahoo!Sports, by AFP:

Russell Henley fired two eagles in a seven-under-par 63 on Friday to seize a three-shot lead over China's Li Haotong through two rounds of the US PGA Tour Sony Open in Hawaii.

Henley, who started the day tied for second behind defending champion Kevin Na, opened with a birdie on the 10th hole at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu, and after a bogey at the 16th he kickstarted his round at 18, where he holed out from a greenside bunker for eagle.  Read more
