Kuchar takes Sony Open lead; Spieth misses cut

Matt Kuchar leads the Sony Open after back-to-back rounds of 7-under 63, but other big names, such as Jordan Spieth, weren't so lucky Friday at Waialae Country Club. Here's where things stand at the halfway point in Honolulu:

Leaderboard: Matt Kuchar (-14), Andrew Putnam (-13), Chez Reavie (-10), Stewart Cink (-10), Marc Leishman (-9), Ted Potter Jr. (-9)

What it means: Kuchar is enjoying a bit of resurgence. After winning for the first time since 2015 last fall in Mexico, Kuchar tied the lowest 36-hole total of his career Friday in Hawaii. He birdied four of his first five holes en route to becoming just the fifth player in the past 10 seasons to open a PGA Tour event with back-to-back rounds of 63 or lower.
