Malnati, Kokrak and Niemann rule the Sony Open

The Americans and the Chilean finished the first day with 62 strokes, eight under par. Discreet performance by Sergio García, who finished the day with 70 hits.


The Americans Peter Malnati and Jason Kokrak and the Chilean Joaquín Niemann are leaders after the first day of the Sony Open in Hawaii that started this Thursday in Honolulu. The three golfers finished the day with 62 strokes, 8 under par.

Malnati finished the day with a total of nine birdies, although a bogey on the 13th hole stopped his perfect course on this first day. For his part, Jason Kokrak finished the first day with 8 birdies while Joaquín Niemann made seven birdies and a bogey on the 12th hole to take the lead on the 18th hole with an eagle.

Things did not go well on this first day for Sergio García, the only Spanish participant in the tournament. The one from Castellón finished the tour with 70 shots, in par, and eight hits from the three leaders. A double bogey on hole 6 marked Garcia's performance, who also committed three more bogeys for five birdies and who will have to improve on Friday to try to get closer to the top positions.
