Kisner Flirts with 59, Thomas Still Leading After Third Round at Sony Open

Despite Justin Thomas’ continued domination of the field, it was Kevin Kisner who stole the show on Saturday at the Sony Open, coming within a single stroke of the second 59 of the tournament. Like Thomas on Thursday, Kisner started on the back nine, and came into the par-5 9th hole needing to make an eagle for 59. Kisner’s 9 foot putt for eagle drifted just too far right, but the 10-under score helped Kisner (who made the cut on the number Friday) jump 64 spots up the leaderboard into a tie for 6th place. Justin Thomas shot a 5-under 65 to bring him to 22-under for the tournament, and 7 strokes clear of Zach Johnson in second place. Justin Rose, Gary Woodland, and Hudson Swafford are tied for third place, all 8 shots back of Thomas at -14.
