Russell Henley carries halfway in Hawaii

Russell Henley provided a strong final touch to open a three-shot lead halfway through the Sony Open, with top seed Cameron Smith withdrawing early.

Henley sent Nasreen out on his Waialae Country Club tour and played his last six holes in a six-under in order to close out the second round 63 and steer clear of nearest challenger Haotong Li.

The 2013 champion raced from dugout to Eagle 18 but failed to get up and down the sand in the quad first, then Henley followed four birdsongs in a five-hole stretch of fourth by finishing his run with a header. A 30-foot-tall eagle at the five-bar tower at nine.

“I don’t remember the last time I had Nasrin on the same tour, but it sure is exciting,” Henley said. “We still have a long way to go, but obviously I’m just looking to continue to have confidence in my game for the next couple of days.”

Defending champion Kevin Na, the first-round leader, faltered to 71 on Friday and dropped seven shots off his pace, while Smith – the record-breaking winner last week at the Sentry of Champions – missed by three strokes after a second. Round 71.
