KAPALUA, Maui — U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover had another big stretch of birdies on his way to an 8-under 65 that gave him the lowest 36-hole score at Kapalua in five years and a three-shot lead in the SBS Championship.

Glover was losing ground Friday until a two-putt birdie on the fifth hole, the start of a six-hole stretch that he played in 6 under. He needed all those birdies — along with one eagle — to keep ahead on a pristine day for scoring along the Maui coastline.
Glover was at 15-under 131 going into the weekend.
John Rollins played bogey-free in a round of 66 and was three shots behind, followed by a group at 11-under 135 that included defending champion Geoff Ogilvy (66) and Sean O’Hair (67).
Everyone in the 28-man field of PGA Tour winners was at par or better.
