Kooch has carded consecutive rounds of -7 under par 63 to lead the Sony Open in Hawaii by one shot at -14 under par;
“Just two great days. To shoot 7-under back to back is unexpected, but certainly awfully excited.”
“I want to say last year I probably ground harder than I’ve done in the past.”
“Close to Ryder Cup I was on the outside of a couple things and felt like I hadn’t been used to being in that situation.”
“So now being in good shape it’s certainly a nice place to be. Freed up? I’m not sure. I still kind of attack the game the same way.”
“Love the golf course. It’s a challenging one. If you play well you can make birdies; if you don’t you’re going to make bogeys.”
“The golf course gets tough when you’re playing from the rough. Even if you have short clubs in your hand it’s challenging.”
Andrew Putnam is one shot back at -13 under par after his second round -5 under 65.
Chez Reavie, -5 under 65 today, and Stewart Cink, -8 under 62 share third place at -10 under par.
Chez remarkably had more Eagles than birdies in his round, no one had ever made three eagles in one round on par fours since records began;
“It was on a good line, and that was the only time it crossed my mind, Wow, could we make another one?”
“The other two, I just hit the shot I was trying to see and it was going at the hole. Never expected it to go in. It’s always a surprise when it disappears.”
“Apparently, I need to go buy a lottery ticket today.”
Players who will spend the next couple of days at the beach after missing the cut here, set at -2 under, are some notables, Zach Johnson, Jordan Spieth, Bubba Watson and Adam Scott.
