Brian Harman finds himself on the top of the tree in Honolulu after the second round — having been in a similar position in the Sentry Tournament of Champions on the islands last week.
The American climbed two places with his seven-under round of 63 to go three shots clear at 13 under for the Sony Open.
Starting on the back nine, Harman was three-under at the turn, and followed up with three birdies on the second, third and fourth.
The only blot in the book was a bogey on the seventh, but he finished with a flourish: sinking a 17-foot putt for eagle on the par-5 ninth.
Séamus Power is tied for 37th place after posting a second consecutive two under par round of 68.
Jordan Speith’s round of 68 was a lot less eventful than Thursday’s where he hit a quadruple bogey.
He sits tied for 48th on three under, having carded four birdies and a pair of bogeys.
