2018 Sony Open: Hawaiian Missile Scare Kicks Off Crazy Round 3

The golfers who made the cut at the Sony Open woke up to an errant message on their phones that a missile was headed for Hawaii. The terror lasted for only a few minutes, but it set a bizarre haze over the third round of the event for the rest of the day (more on that below).

When the dust settled on Saturday, Tom Hoge led the field at 16 under after 54 holes. He has a lot of company, though, as Patton Kizzire and Brian Harman are 15 under, Kyle Stanley is 14 under, and Chris Kirk is 13 under. In all, 13 players are within six of Hoge's slim lead.

On a course where there have been 35 scores of 5-under 65 or better, Sunday should be a fantastic day of veterans and young stars chasing a golfer -- Hoge -- who is looking for his first-ever PGA Tour win.

Here are five takeaways from Round 3 in Honolulu.
