Matt Kuchar kept another clean card and shot a 4-under 66 to take a two-shot lead into the final round of the Sony Open as he goes for his second victory this season on the PGA Tour.

Kuchar ended a four-year drought by winning the Mayakoba Classic in Mexico last fall.

He has made only one bogey through 54 holes at Waialae Country Club, and his 18-under 192 was the lowest 54-hole score of his career.

Andrew Putnam was two shots behind after a 67.

Keith Mitchell had a 63 and was four behind, along with Chez Reavie (66).

Those were the only players within five shots of the lead, and all of them are chasing Kuchar. He is 2-2 in his career when leading going into the final round.
