The Makau Hook Trophy remains available for anyone to take after 36 holes of play.
Eight golfers are one stroke behind of the lead heading into todays final round of the Mitsubishi Electric Championship at Hualalai. Vijay Singh, Stephen Ames and Ernie Els are tied for the first place at 12-under.
Els had a one-stroke lead going into the day and seemed to be riding the momentum of Thursday’s round. However, he tripped up on the fifth hole which allowed his competitors to gain ground.
Stephen Ames, Jim Furyk and Miguel Angel Jimenez, Scott Parel and Brett Quigley were the five golfers who posted the lowest score of the day, at 6-under. Five golfers are tied for fourth at 11 under. Furyk, Jimenez, Quigley, Steven Alker and Retief Goosen.
Alker and Goosen are the most consistent golfers so far. They have not had a bogey, or worse, this being the only players to achieve that feat at Hualalai. Shane Bertsch leads the field, with three eagles in two rounds. No other player has more.
Jimenez ended Friday with a hot streak, scoring birdies on four out of five final holes to get himself into contention. Quigley shot a round without a bogey, highlighted by an eagle at the par-5 10th.
Stephen Dodd’s par-3 17th-hole shot was the highlight of the day. He hit the only ace in the tournament thus far. Dodd’s hole in one is only the third of tournament history.
Today’s final round at Hualalai will begin at 10 a.m. Stephen Dodd, Larry Mize, and Tom Watson will lead the way. At 12:23 p.m., the leading trio of Els, Ames and Singh will begin.
