HONOLULU – Zac Blair missed a 2-foot birdie putt on his final hole Saturday and had to settle for a share of the lead with Brandt Snedeker.

Blair drilled a 3-wood into the par-5 closing hole at Waialae to just over 40 feet, lagged it short and pulled the short birdie. He still had a 6-under 64 and will have a good shot at his first PGA Tour victory.

Snedeker missed birdie putts of 10 feet and 12 feet on the last two holes for a 66.

They were at 16-under 194.

Kevin Kisner birdied his last hole for a 66 and was one shot behind. He will be in the final group for the third time in his last four PGA Tour events.

Canada’s Graham DeLaet is tied for 13th at 10-under 200.
