Playing out of the seventh-to-last threesome and with preferred lies in effect, World No. 5 Collin Morikawa hung up a day- and career-tying-low 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap on 18-under 262, up 10 spots to a season-tying-best T7, three in arrears of champion Kevin Na (65).
After kicking off with 66-65-67, the top-ranked OWGRer in the field began T17 on 12-under, two shy of the overnight top 10 and six adrift of leader Brendan Steele (69). He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 0.629 strokes around-the-green but gaining 1.036 off-the-tee and 2.882 on approach. The 23-year-old squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 7 (failed sand save), smothered by seven circles at 2, 5, 7, 9. 10, 12, 15 and 17, each from inside of 12 feet. He recorded 1.600 putts per GIR and 0.177 SG: Putting, concluding the week with 25 birdies versus three bogeys and two doubles. Today's 64 matches his career low in 142 rounds (x7), most recently in the final round at last season's PGA Championship en route to a 2-shot victory 10 starts ago, and improves to 5-for-7 on the season with two top 10s, two straight after T7 last week on Maui. This was the Las Vegas resident's second Sony after T21 last year as the 18-hole leader by two, and is not in the published field at this coming week's American Express.

Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome and with preferred lies in effect, World No. 30 Marc Leishman fashioned a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to conclude on 19-under 261, up five places to a season-best T4, two adrift of champion Kevin Na (65).
After opening with 66-65-65, Rounds 2 and 3 bogey-free, the 37-year-old began T9, four short of leader Brendan Steele (69). On seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, he lost 1.595 strokes off-the-tee but gained 1.658 approaching and 2.215 around-the-green. The Virginia Beach resident squared two bogey-5s at holes 5 and 8, outpaced by seven birdies at 6, 9, 10, 12 (hole-out from 30'9"), 13, 16 and 18, each of his conventional ones from inside of nine feet. He registered 1.583 putts per GIR and 0.188 SG: Putting, wrapping the week with 23 birdies against four bogeys. This was the Aussie's 12th Sony, seventh top 25 and fourth top 10, three of those doubling as top 5s, including a best of T3 two tries ago in 2019. He improves to 5-for-7 on the season with one top 10, replacing a previous-best T13 at the Masters three starts ago, and records his first top 10 since solo 2nd at last season's Arnold Palmer Invitational 16 starts and 10 months ago. Leishman is not in the published field at this coming week's American Express.

Playing out of the sixth-to-last threesome and with preferred lies in effect, World No. 8 Webb Simpson tossed up a day-tying-low 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 72-hole total of 19-under 261, up nine places to a season-best T4, two short of champion Kevin Na, who carded a 65 out of the final threesome.
The 35-year-old, a pre-tourney 12/1 fave outright, bags his eighth top 25 at the Sony in 11 tries, seventh straight, and fourth top 10, third consecutive with each doubling as top 5s. He improves to 7-for-7 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, bettering a T8 at the U.S. Open in his season-opener, and records his first top 5 since T3 at last season's Wyndham nine starts ago. For the week, the Wake Forest alum carded rounds of 65-65-67-64, and totaled one eagle and 22 birdies versus five bogeys. On Sunday, he began T13, five back of pace-setter Brendan Steele (69), and found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. The North Carolinian lost strokes approaching (-0.002) and around-the-green (-0.788), but gained 0.291 off-the-tee and a sterling 3.965 on-the-green. He squared two bogey-4s at holes 4 and 11 (penalty drop), camouflaged by an eagle-3 at 9 from 23'9", and six circles at 2, 3, 5, 13, 16 and 17, three from between 12 and 45 feet, and two from greater than 31 feet. Simpson is not in the published field at this coming week's American Express.

Playing out of the final threesome and with preferred lies in effect, overnight leader and World No. 114 Brendan Steele stalled out to a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 19-under 261, falling three spots to T4, two in arrears of playing competitor and champion Kevin Na (65).
The 37-year-old falls to 1-for-6 as a 54-hole leader/co-leader, zero for his last five. His most recent before today was here last year, where he led by three, shot 1-over 71 and lost in extra time. This week, after kicking off with 65-66 and career-low 61, the UC-Riverside alum led by two over two players, including Na. On nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he gained 0.429 strokes off-the-tee but lost 1.236 approaching and 0.440 around-the-green. The Californian went out in bogey-free 3-under, carding birdie at hole 7 from 12'5" and eagle at 9 from 20'11", and now led by three over Billy Horschel and Na. He stumbled from there, however, coming home in birdie-less 2-over after bogey-5s at 10 (3-putt from 77'11") and 14 (failed scramble). Steele missed birdie at 17 from 9'6", and again at the last from 8'3", posting a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and -0.287 SG: Putting. Overall, this was his third Sony and second cash, improves to 4-for-7 on the season with one top 25, and records his first top 10 since T6 at last season's Travelers 13 starts ago. Steele, who is in the published field at this coming week's American Express, totaled one eagle and 23 birdies against six bogeys.

Playing out of the third-to-last threesome and in his final start on a Major Medical Extension, World No. 263 Chris Kirk rallied for a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to finish up on 20-under 260, up two places into a two-way T2, one adrift of champion Kevin Na, who also shot 65 (out of the final threesome).
The 35-year-old needed a two-way T3 to meet the terms of his medical and carded four 65s to seal the deal. It's his ninth career top-3 finish and fifth runner-up in 256 events, and first podium since T2 at the 2016-17 opposite-field Sanderson Farms 89 starts ago as a 54-hole co-leader. This was the Georgia alum's 11th consecutive Sony and third top 10, joining a T10 in 2018 and solo 2nd in 2014 as the 54-hole leader by one. He improves to 5-for-6 on the season with two top 25s and one top 10, bettering a prior-best T18 at the RSM two starts ago, and records his first top 10 since T6 at the 2018 FedEx St. Jude. For the week, the Georgian tallied two eagles and 24 birdies versus five bogeys and one triple, and is in the published field at this coming week's American Express. In the finale, he was 2-over thru five holes, squaring bogey-5s at 1 and 3 (watered tee ball), but righted the ship with seven circles at 6, 8, 9, 12-14 and 18, losing 0.496 strokes with the flat stick but gaining 1.974 approaching and 0.652 around-the-green.

With preferred lies in effect and playing out of the final threesome, first-round tri-leader and World No. 31 Joaquin Niemann finished birdie-birdie toward a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to conclude on 20-under 260, good for a two-way T2, one short of playing competitor and champion Kevin Na (65).
The 22-year-old drops to 0-for-3 as an 18-hole leader/co-leader but does bag his second runner-up in 74 events, second straight after a P2 last week on Maui. This was his second Sony, bettering a T57 last year, and improves to 8-for-8 on the season with three top 10s. After opening with a career-tying-low 62, 69-63, the Chilean began T2, two back of leader Brendan Steele (69), and conjured five (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He lost strokes off-the-tee (-0.514) and around-the-green (-0.018), but gained 0.898 on approach and 1.100 on-the-green. The South Florida resident squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 3, outpaced by five birdies at 9, 10, 12, 17 (chip-shot from 56'9" away) and 18 (from 10'2"), registering 1.769 putts per GIR with 27 total putts. For the week, he tallied two eagles and 19 birdies versus three bogeys. Niemann is not in the published field at this coming week's American Express.

With preferred lies in effect and playing out of the final threesome, World No. 38 Kevin Na birdied four of his final six holes en route to a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii for a 72-hole tally of 21-under 259, up one spot on the day and good for a one-shot victory over runners-up Chris Kirk (65) and playing competitor Joaquin Niemann (66).
The 37-year-old, a pre-tourney 66/1 outright, bags his fifth TOUR title in 424 events, first since last season's Shriners 25 starts ago. At the Shriners, he was the 54-hole leader by two (68-62-61), closed with 1-under 70, and then dispatched Patrick Cantlay in extra time. After tasting victory just one time in his first 369 events, the Las Vegas resident has now won four more in his last 54 starts, including one in each of the last four seasons. This was his 14th Sony, first since a missed cut in 2018, and fourth top 10, first since T8 five tries ago in 2014. After kicking off with 67-66 and career- and week-tying-low 61, the South Korean-born American began T2, two back of leader Brendan Steele (69), and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 12 (3-putt from 39'10"), outflanked by six birdies at 2, 9, 13-15 and 18, three from between 10 and 15 feet, and also saved par three times from between six and 16 feet. Na gained 0.937 strokes approaching and 1.798 on-the-green with 27 total putts, wrapping the week with one eagle and 24 birdies versus five bogeys. He is in the published field at this coming week's American Express.

With preferred lies in effect and playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, World No. 13 Daniel Berger tacked on a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap on 18-under 262, up two places to T7 with play winding down.
This was the 27-year-old's sixth appearance, third top 25 and first top 10, supplanting a previous-best T13 on debut in 2015. He improves to 6-for-6 on the season with two top 10s, joining a 10th last week at the Sentry TOC, where he was T2 at halftime and solo 4th at the three-quarter mark. For the week, the Florida State product recorded rounds of 64-68-64-66 and totaled 24 birdies against six bogeys. In the finale, he camouflaged one bogey with five birdies on nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.142 strokes approaching but gaining 0.770 off-the-tee, 0.811 around-the-green and 1.038 on-the-green.
