Masters champion Adam Scott made an ominous move up the leaderboard late in the day after little-known American Brian Stuard had seized control of the $5.6 million Sony Open in Hawaii during Friday’s second round. Stuard spectacularly eagled his final hole, the par-five ninth, to shoot a five-under-par 65 on another gorgeous, sun-splashed day with barely a hint of wind at Waialae Country Club in Honolulu. “I feel comfortable on the greens,” Stuard, who has twice finished second on the PGA Tour in pursuit of a maiden victory, told reporters. “I feel like I read them pretty well and I’m able to make putts.” Australian world number two Scott, the highest-ranked player in a surprisingly strong field for the PGA Tour’s first full-field event of the year, lurks just three strokes off the pace after carding a five-birdie 66.
