Spieth's quad costly as Kirk, Johnson lead in Hawaii

Spieth's quad costly as Kirk, Johnson lead in Hawaii

The American shot a seven-under round of 63 on the second day of the tournament in Hawaii, to move to 13 under overall and give himself some breathing space from the five-strong chasing pack.

Kirk and Johnson opened with 7-under 63s to share the overnight lead.

John Peterson, Tom Hoge and Talor Gooch were also 10-under.

Harman has recorded top-10s in his four tournaments since and says the frustration of being overlooked for a place at Liberty National is spurring him on at Waialae Country Club. "I've always kind of felt like as long as there's fairways and green and holes to putt it, then I'm going to be fine".

Harman had been solid before making three straight birdies, beginning at the second. After dropping his lone shot from a bunker on the par-3 seventh, Harman hit 7-iron from 172 yards to 15 feet on the par-5 ninth for a closing eagle.

Swiss insist on stunning lobsters before cooking
Elwood has conducted a series of experiments that suggest crustaceans are sentient and that boiling them alive is inhumane. The new edict comes in the wake of a recent Italian law that decreed lobsters can't be kept on ice in restaurant kitchens.

Defending champion Justin Thomas, who a year ago opened with a 59 before going on to set the PGA Tour's all-time scoring record in a 72-hole event of 253, could not conjure up that same magic, instead carding a three-under 67, four strokes behind the leaders.

While Spieth was less than pleased as he left the course, Australian PGA champion Smith will be feeling confident after an opening round which saw him post six birdies.

But things were about to take a turn for the worse as he pulled his tee shot left and hit a tree just 220 metres off the tee. He played the Zurich Classic, a two-man team event, with Johnson Wagner and used Wagner's Titleist golf ball during the alternate-shot portion. I feel like I was a better ball striker when I was a kid than a pro.

Harman played in the final group last week and tied for third, though no one was about to catch Dustin Johnson.

Harman, now ranked 23rd in the world, is sixth in the American Ryder Cup standings, well in contention for one of 12 spots on the visiting team for the October competition against Europe outside Paris.
