Matt Kuchar said, “40 is the new 20”, quoting Jay-Z, after winning his second of season and ninth PGA TOUR title after a dominating show of 22-under 258, which included two consecutive opening rounds of 63.
Kuchar took away the lead from Andrew Putnam on Friday and never looked back. He added two consecutive rounds of 66 on weekends to win his second title in four starts in the 2019 season. His last win came at the Mayakoba Classic in November, 2018, for which he had to wait over 1667 days, but for his ninth win he just waited 64 days.
Sony Open in Hawaii at Waialae Country Club – which Kuchar won by four strokes on Sunday for his ninth PGA TOUR win – is not a major it does come with a nice perk for the champion.
A state of the art AIBO robotic dog.
Both Cameron and Carson were all smiles as they accompanied their father on his tournament winner duties.
“It’s going to be a great addition to the family. We are going to have some fun with AIBO,” Kuchar beamed with his trademark smile.
“We talk about getting a real dog, but AIBO is going to have to be our little real dog for the time being.”
Anirban Lahiri started his 2019 campaign with Sony Open in Hawaii and finished T-43 with his rounds of 68,68,71 and 66 at 7-under 273. He posted 15 birdies overall in his four rounds, although it may not be his best start to the season but a lot of good things can be expected from this Indian fire power. Lahiri ended his 2018 season with over $1,441,205 in earnings and four Top-10 finishes, his best stats till date on the TOUR.
