WHAT: NEWS AND NOTES, FACTS AND STATS

  • Brendan Steele (T-1) leads the field in strokes gained: putting (+3.46) and one-putt percentage (55.56%). Steele has recorded 20 one-putts through the first two rounds, the fifth time of his career with at least 20 one-putts through 36 holes.
  • After missing five of six cuts this season, Cameron Davis takes his first-ever lead/co-lead on the PGA Tour. Prior to this week, Cameron Davis had never been higher than T-10 after any round on the PGA Tour. He co-leads the Sony Open with Steele at 6 under following a second-round, 4-under 66.
  • Collin Morikawa held the 18-hole lead for the first time despite owning one PGA Tour win in his young career. Sitting one shot back after a second-round 70, Morikawa (T-3) will again try for a career-first 54-hole lead. His previous best 36-hole position was at last year's Travelers Championship when he sat T-6 heading into the weekend, but faltered to finish T-36.
  • Defending champion Matt Kuchar misses cut following a 3-over 73, his highest score in his last 26 rounds in the event. In addition, 2017 champion Justin Thomas also missed the cut following rounds of 72-71, making his first MC since last summer’s U.S. Open and just his third since the beginning of the 2017-18 PGA Tour season.
  • The 2017 and 2018 winners of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, Patton Kizzire and Matt Kuchar, respectively, also went on to win the Sony Open in Hawaii a few months after their victory in Mexico. Brendon Todd, who won the 2019 Mayakoba Golf Classic, sits T-24 at 2-under.
