Reavie writes the history of the PGA with 3 eagles on normal holes


At Reavie went into history with three Eagles on normal 4 holes during the second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii on Friday.

According to the PGA circuit, no one had achieved this feat since the beginning of accurate recording of such events in 1983.

Reavie discreet took the realization in stride.

"It was strange," said the 37-year-old American at the Waialae Country Club's Golf Channel in Honolulu, where he coached Matt Kuchar's lead to four shots.

"You hit well and you do not expect to go in. You are always surprised when they fall."

At the same time, Canadian rookie Adam Svensson, who started with a 61 to take a lead in the first round on Thursday, followed with a 74 to fall nine-behind American Matt Kuchar.

Reavie, the 2008 Canadian Open champion, wasted no time getting his first eagle, having lost 100 yards in the 10th, his first hole of the day.

He added his next 150-yard eagle to 16th, and as if that was not enough, he added another 135 yards on the sixth hole.

He stated that it was only after the third eagle that he began to wonder if a fourth was in reserve and that when his approach at the corner of hole 17 would have flown straight to the spit, he "thought that could really reproduce. "

His ball stopped six feet from the cup.

Under these circumstances, he might have been right to be a little disappointed with a game under 65, with a double bogey, but without complaining.

"You can not be disappointed here," he said after signing a total of 130 to 10 under half.

"This golf course is difficult."
