PGA.COM recap: HONOLULU -- Different island, similar result. Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed finished the tournament with the same score.
Only this was was Friday at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
There was no playoff, only a plane back to the mainland.
In wind that was vexing no matter how strong and soft greens so rare for this tournament, Thomas and Reed both missed the cut at Waialae and missed out on what could be a weekend where anything goes.
Brendan Steele birdied five of his last six holes -- the exception was a double bogey -- for a 4-under 66 that gave him a share of the lead with Cameron Davis of Australia, who also had a 66.
Five days ago, Thomas, the FedExCup points leader, outlasted Reed in a dynamic playoff on Maui that lasted three extra holes and went to the very edge of darkness at Kapalua in the Sentry Tournament of Champions.
Neither will be around for the outcome on Oahu.
"I'm playing great, playing good enough to still be winning this week," Thomas said after two double bogeys ruined his round of 71. "Probably a little exhausted from last week, which is a good thing. No, I mean, played like crap so I deserve to have the weekend off."
It was his first missed cut since the U.S. Open last year at Pebble Beach.
