Stricker near lead after Sony's third round


Jeff Maggert shares control of the Sony Open in Hawaii with 36-hole leader Matt Every. With a third round of 6-under 64, Maggert is even with Every on 12 under par.

It will be a wide-open final round, however, as 27 players are within five shots of the lead, most notably Steve Stricker, who is seeking a Hawaiian double after winning last week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions. Stricker is four back at 8 under after a 67.

In third place on 10 under are Johnson Wagner, Brendon de Jonge and Charles Howell III. Wagner and Howell shot 66 on Saturday at Waialae CC. After a 62 on Friday, de Jonge was five shots higher on Saturday.

Duffy Waldorf and D.A. Points share sixth on 9 under.

Eleven players are tied for eighth, including 2011 PGA champion Keegan Bradley and Sean O'Hair.

Maggert, who will turn 48 next month, is searching for his first PGA Tour win since the 2006 FedEx St. Jude Classic.
