One week after Harman shared the 36-hole lead at Kapalua, he ran off three straight birdies and closed with a 15-foot eagle putt for a 7-under 63 and a three-shot lead going into the weekend at the Sony Open.

His ball seemed destined to scuttle well beyond the hole, which fortunately got in the way and acted as a backboard, the ball disappearing for an unlikely birdie with the PGA Tour confirming it was his longest successful putt on the circuit. He made a quadruple-bogey 8 on his 17th hole of the round and even a birdie at his final hole was only good for 69.

Defending champion Justin Thomas, who fired a first-round 59 in route to victory previous year, had three birdies in a three-under 67. Thomas, an Alabama alum, won a bet that required Georgia graduate Kevin Kisner to wear a Crimson Tide jersey from the tee box to the green.

The American did produce one of the shots of the day with an incredible 91-foot birdie putt at the fifth, but he is at three under and tied for 48th.

"Just kept the course in front of me and played solid golf", Johnson said, winless since the 2015 British Open at St. Andrews. He hit a tree with his next two shots before finally finding a greenside bunker.

His drive on No. 8 was not terribly offline, and the trees to the left are a common spot. His plan was to hit out of the sandy base of the ditch toward the trees closer to the fairway.

Waialae is at sea level - waist-high hedges along the 16th and 17th holes and behind the 11th green are all that separate grass from the beach - with smaller, flatter greens and fairways framed by trees.

At his point, he was lying 4 and was only a few yards away from the second tee, waiting for another group to tee off. He had a look at eagle on the par-five 18th, where he holed a two-footer for birdie.
