HONOLULU (AP) Brian Stuard had his fourth straight round of 65 at the Sony Open. Too bad it's only Friday.

Stuard finished his second round with a hybrid into 2 feet for eagle and a 5-under 65. That gave him a one-shot lead over Marc Leishman of Australia among those who played early on another gorgeous day on Oahu.

Stuard, who was at 10-under 130, had a 65-65 weekend at Waialae last year when he tied for fifth.

Leishman had a 64, while Jason Kokrak (67) was another shot behind. Hudson Swafford had a 64 and was in the group at 6-under 134.

Jordan Spieth, a runner-up last week at Kapalua, hit a tee shot out-of-bounds on his 10th hole and missed the cut for the first time since the PGA Championship.
