Snedeker, Blair tied for lead at Sony Open

Zac Blair missed a 2-foot birdie putt on his final hole Saturday and had to settle for a share of the lead with Brandt Snedeker.

Blair drilled a 3-wood into the par-5 closing hole at Waialae to just over 40 feet, lagged it short and pulled the short birdie. He still had a 6-under 64 and will have a good shot at his first PGA Tour victory.

Snedeker missed birdie putts of 10 feet and 12 feet on the last two holes for a 66.

They were at 16-under 194.

Kevin Kisner birdied his last hole for a 66 and was one shot behind. He will be in the final group for the third time in his last four PGA Tour events.
