Brian Gay: Gay ties Kapalua record with a front-nine 29

Brian Gay sprinted out of the gates during the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions in his 8-under-par 29-36=65 and reached the 54-hole point at 8-under 211.
Gay’s 29 on the Kapalua Resort Plantation Course’s outward nine tied Mike Weir’s record set in 2002. The Florida Gator’s ability to roll the rock as well as anyone on the PGA TOUR affords him opportunities to go low when the ball-striking shows up. He circled five birdies and an eagle on that nine, failing to capitalize on the par-5 ninth. Four of those red numbers fell from outside 10 feet, with the longest being his 18-foot eagle on the par-5 fifth. He added a birdie on the par-3 11th, then suffered his lone bogey on the par-4 16th after spinning approach off the green before bouncing back with a 17’4″ birdie on the difficult par-4 17th. He finished the day three strokes off the course record of 62.
