Tway seizes early Champions' lead, Johnson one stroke back

Tway seizes early Champions' lead, Johnson one stroke back

Patton Kizzire in action at the Sentry Tournament of Champions at the Plantation Course at Kapalua Golf Club Hawaii.

McIlroy holed five birdies and a bogey, while Day enjoyed a flawless back nine to move within three strokes of Tway.

"I was just trying to drink water, eat some food and stay upright", he told the Golf Channel.

"I played good", Tway said.

Meanwhile, defending Kapalua champion Dustin Johnson had a freaky rules gaffe on the par-4 fourth hole.

Leishman played well early in this event previous year in fact he shared the lead through 36 holes before finishing 7th and today gave an indication that he might well improve on that this week.


Four-time major champion McIlroy climbed four positions thanks to his second-round 68 that featured six birdies - three of which came in the final five holes.

The Tour's winners-only event in Maui welcomes only those players who have notched victories during the 2018 calendar year. "I was walking up to 16 green, so it wasn't as though it was right before".

World No. 8 Rory McIlroy and No. 14 Jason Day are tied for sixth at four under. He tried to whack it out and reached only the rough and wound up with a double bogey.

It was the first tournament day where the players experienced the new rules introduced by the R & A and the USGA, with a few players choosing to putt with the flagstick left in, notably Bryson DeChambeau, an advocate of putting with the flag in place, who did it even from close range. I drove it well, kept the ball in play, hit a lot of greens and made some good putts. "I could see the logo on the side, so I obviously just assumed it was mine", Johnson said.

But the four-time PGA Tour victor said the interview had no influence on his hiccup, having conducted on-course interviews at Australian tournaments for several years.

"It's kind of blowing downwind, 5 per cent slope, straight down hill, you want that pin to help", he said.
