Cam Davis recorded a career-low 8-under 62, and tied a career-high with nine birdies, to take a two-shot lead at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

“I started figuring out what wasn’t working, what was working, and Sunday last week I started to put some consistent shots together,” said the Australian of his game at The Sentry in Maui. “I thought as long as I can build off that round and continue that on to this week and next week, that is the sort of momentum I was looking for. It was very cool to back it up with a really good round.”

American Taylor Montgomery opened with a 64 and lies in solo second place at 6-under.

England's Aaron Rai, German Stephan Jaeger and Americans Austin Eckroat and Webb Simpson all carded 65s for a tie of third place at 5-under.

The first round of the Sony Open in Hawaii was suspended due to darkness at 6:08 p.m. HT and will resume Friday at 7:30 a.m. The second round will begin as scheduled at 7:10 a.m.

Aon Swing 5

The Sony Open in Hawaii, the second event of the 2024 PGA TOUR Season and first Full-Field Event, marks the first opportunity for players to earn FedExCup points towards the Aon Swing 5.

The Aon Next 10 and Aon Swing 5 are eligibility pathways for players, not already qualified, to play their way into Signature Events via the FedExCup standings.

The top five players not otherwise exempt who earn the most FedExCup points during the Sony Open in Hawaii, The American Express and Farmers Insurance Open will qualify for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, while the top five players not otherwise exempt who earn the most FedExCup points during those three events and the WM Phoenix Open, will qualify for The Genesis Invitational.

The Aon Next 10 for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am and The Genesis Invitational was determined through the FedExCup Fall standings.

The top two players on the leaderboard (Cam Davis, Taylor Montgomery) are qualified for the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am; none of the four players that are T3 are otherwise exempt (Aaron Rai, Austin Eckroat, Stephan Jaeger, Webb Simpson).
