World No. 50 Gary Woodland carved out a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap up his fifth appearance on 17-under 263, down three spots into a two-way T6, 10 back of overnight leader and champion Justin Thomas.
The 32-year-old began R4 in a three-way T3 on 14-under, eight adrift. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he sleepwalked to an even-par first half, exchanging an opening birdie-3 from 16'10" with a one-putt bogey-6 at the ninth after hitting his tee shot OB. In between, the Kansas alum only had one scoring chance from inside of 26 feet, a missed 10-footer at the par-4 third. He came home in bogey-free 3-under, with birdies at 10 and 14,, both from inside of 10 feet, and a two-putt version at the par-5 18th after whiffing an eagle try from 8'9". Woodland also missed a 9-footer for birdie at 16. He was solo 2nd thru 36 holes after opening in 64-64, but closed in 68-67. This is his second top 10 of the season in four starts, joining a runner-up at the OHL Classic, where he was the 54-hole leader. Jan 15 - 11:50 PM
