Jordan Spieth six off the lead after late quadruple-bogey — Sony Open

Cameron Smith is among the early frontrunners at the US PGA Tour's Sony Open in Hawaii while Jordan Spieth's charge was derailed by a tree-studded quadruple bogey.

Spieth hit four trees with four shots on the par-4 eighth hole — his 17th of the round — an episode that began with his tee shot caroming off a trunk and into a ditch. He finished with six birdies overall, before rolling in a 17-footer for an eagle on the par five ninth.

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.

Kirk, whose most recent victory was at Colonial in 2015, said a return to his old putting routines had paid off on the greens.

"I'm making putts, but I'm also putting myself in position to make those putts", Harman said.

"I had a great day today". It takes about five or 10 minutes. The duo were one shot ahead of Vaughn Taylor, Kyle Stanley, Talor Gooch and Brian Harman. "It's laziness, I guess, not doing it consistently over the last couple of years".

From there the 24-year-old former world number one advanced the ball into a greenside bunker but was unable to get it up and down from the sand, eventually walking off with a quadruple bogey eight.

Harman had been solid before making three straight birdies, beginning at the second.

Japan's Daisuke Kataoka and Americans Peter Malnati, Matt Every and Tom Hoge all shot 65.

His tee shot pulled left off the tee and collected a tree, falling down into the rough.

Incredibly his third also hit a tree and not to be outdone so did the fourth. Joining him will be good friend and defending champion Justin Thomas, who secured back-to-back 67s to be 6 under for the tournament.
