Los Angeles: Brian Harman capped a seven-under par 63 with an eagle at his final hole Friday to seize a three-shot lead in the second round of the US PGA Tour’s Sony Open in Hawaii. Harman, who has four top-10 finishes in four starts in the US tour’s 2017-18 season, teed off early at Waialea in Honolulu, and opened with back-to-back birdies at the 10th and 11th. His six birdies on the day included three in a row at the second, third and fourth and he rolled in a 17-footer at the par-five ninth for an eagle that gave him a 13-under total of 127. “I’m making putts, but I’m also putting myself in position to make those putts,” Harman said.
