Harman seizes second-round lead

Jordan Spieth has already made a number of long, highlight-reel putts in his five years on the PGA Tour, none more impressive than his bounce back eagle on Royal Birkdale's 15th hole during the final round of the Open Championship.

"I can't remember when, or if, I've ever made three eagles in a round but it was fun", said Grace, who eagled the second, eighth and 15th, all of them par fives.

Both Kirk and Johnson carded seven-under rounds of 63 on the first day of the Honolulu tournament, to earn a one-shot lead over the chasing pack. "I've always kind of felt like as long as there's fairways and green and holes to putt it, then I'm going to be fine".

Johnson, victor of the 2007 Masters and the 2015 Open championship, broke away from the second-placed bunch at the final hole, despite finding a fairway bunker off the tee.

"I didn't feel like I deserved a pick by any means, and I would've been happy with one, but I didn't feel like I played well enough to make it where it was a snub by any means", Harman said on Friday.

"I had a great day today, and I'm about to go do it".

Kirk registered seven birdies in his opening round, including making a flawless read for one from 35 feet on the par-four 13th.

The quartet of Vaughn Taylor, Kyle Stanley, Talor Gooch and Brian Harman are one shot adrift of the leaders after all shot 64s.

Harman surged ahead in the morning with two quick birdies on the back nine, made the turn in 32 and ran off three straight birdies early on the front nine. Harman, playing in the afternoon, had eight birdies that included three in a row at the fifth, sixth and seventh.

Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel, who blew a four-shot lead with five holes to play in this event three years ago, is four shots off the lead after an opening 69.

Defending champion Justin Thomas posted a second straight 67 to be tied for 17th at six under.
