Sony Open Tracker

11 p.m.: Tom Hoge better get a good night’s sleep. He leads outright by one shot entering the final round as he looks to capture his first PGA Tour victory on Sunday.

10 p.m.: Patton Kizzire, the pride of Sea Island, Ga., is now tied for the lead at 14 under and 5 under on the day despite beginning his round with a double bogey. Hoge, Kirk, Harman right there with him at 14 under.

9:02 p.m.: Standing over a 7-foot par putt, Brian Harman backed off it and asked a nearby volunteer to keep his Quiet sign down. Moments later after going through his routine he backed off again, looked at the volunteer who apparently raised the Quiet sign again and goes, “I’m not sure how we miscommunicated there.” As you can probably guess, Harman missed the putt and is now tied for the lead with Tom Hoge at 14 under.

8:35 p.m.: Schniederjans’ stint atop the leaderboard was brief. Just made bogey at No. 11 to fall to 13 under and is now 1 shot back of Harman and Tom Hoge, who birdied No. 10 to take a share of the lead.

8:25 p.m.: Schniederjans just birdied No. 10 to tie Harman at 14 under. Game on.

8:15 p.m.: Ollie Schniederjans is making his move. The hat-less youngster just eagled the par-5 ninth and now trails Harman by one stroke at 13 under. Had a bogey at No. 2 but played the next seven holes in 5 under. We will be monitoring the situation.

7:30 p.m.: Harman hanging tough with a birdie at No. 5 to maintain his two-shot lead at 14 under. Chris Kirk and Tom Hoge are two back at 12 under. Pretty ho-hum start to the round thus far.

7 p.m.: Live coverage getting started right now on Golf Channel so make sure to flip over. Harman still up two shots at 13 under with a a big group behind him – Zach Johnson, Tom Hoge, Chris Kirk, Talor Gooch and John Peterson are all T-2 at 11 under. Should be plenty of movement tonight, let’s get nuts.

6:25 p.m.: Leaders just teed off and we’re set for more primetime golf from Hawaii. Zach Johnson birdied No. 1 to get to 11 under, so he’s now two back of leader Brian Harman. Jordan Spieth 1 under through 5 today, Justin Thomas even par through six and T-27 at 6 under for the tournament.
