Choi leads by three at Sony Open

HONOLULU, Hawaii (AP) — A different week, a different island and a much different view for K.J. Choi.

Seven days ago, Choi was bringing up the rear in the Mercedes-Benz Championship, last among 31 winners at Kapalua going into the weekend.

On Friday, he closed with three straight birdies for a 5-under 65 and a three-shot lead in the Sony Open.

With half of the field on the course in the afternoon, Choi set the target.

He was at 11-under 129, three shot clear of Stephen Marino among those who played in the morning. Marino was atop the leaderboard for most of the morning until his momentum stalled with a bogey on the easiest hole, although he recovered for a 67.

Calgary’s Stephen Ames and Jon Mills of Oshawa, Ont., sit in a tie for 44th, nine strokes behind Choi. Ames shot a 2 under, while Miles fired a 1 under to finish the second round.

Fred Funk, aided by a tip from his wife, finished birdie-eagle for a 64 to give the 51-year-old a decent chance before leaving the kids to play on the Champions Tour in Hawaii the next two weeks. E-mail to a friend
