A birdie on the final hole gave Chris Kirk the outright lead in the Sony Open, and that's about it.

Cloudy conditions and only a mild breeze meant just about everyone had a chance at Waialae Country Club. At one point there was a six-way tie for the lead, and 14 players were separated by only one shot.

Kirk had a 65, giving him a one-shot lead over Harris English and PGA Tour rookie Will Wilcox. A dozen players are separated by three shots going into the final round, a group that includes Kapalua winner Zach Johnson.

Masters champion Adam Scott fell back with a 71 and was six shots behind.
