Jeff Maggert, closing in on senior golf, tied with Matt Every at Sony Open
HONOLULU (AP) ' Jeff Maggert played bogey-free in relatively calm conditions Saturday for a 6-under 64 that left the 47-year-old in a tie for the lead with Matt Every in the Sony Open.
Maggert is coming up on the six-year anniversary of his last win, and missed a big chunk of last year after surgery on his right shoulder. He is closing in on the Champions Tour, but showed he still has enough game for the big leagues.
Every stalled on the back nine, and then birdied the last hole for a 68 to join Maggert at 12-under 198.
There were 16 players within four shots of the lead, including Steve Stricker, who is trying to become the first player since Ernie Els in 2003 to sweep the Hawaii events.
