While the Plantation course lends itself to wild swings in scoring, no one has ever lost a three-shot lead after 54 holes since the winners-only tournament moved here in 1999.

Rory McIlroy said he had the flawless warmup for the Sentry Tournament of Champions back home in Jupiter, Fla., last month.

The big-hitting American is seemingly on autopilot around the windswept, 7,500-yard Maui golf course and at 14 under he now leads by two over four-time major champion Rory McIlroy and Kevin Tway.

"My attitude was much better today".

"I did not get the best out of my round as I was five-under through 14 holes and you've got 15, 16, 17 and 18 coming in and you feel like you should birdie", said McIlroy.

He played the final round of the first major of 2018 with eventual victor Patrick Reed at the Masters but faded to finish equal fifth.

Now in his very first event of a new year on the PGA Tour and McIlroy again finds himself in familiar territory after posting a second straight five-under par 68 to move to 14-under par and remain in second place heading to Hawaiian final round.

He was beaten each time.

"And, honestly, I don't think anyone could have beaten Xander today".

Gary Woodland made a 65-foot eagle putt and finished with a birdie for a 5-under 68 to keep his three-shot lead in the Sentry Tournament of Champions on Saturday.

In further PGA Tour news, American golf brand Titleist has announced it's to sponsor Sky Sports Golf coverage of the 2019 PGA Tour and World Golf Championships (WGCs).

"It was a insane day", Schauffele told Golf Channel. This is the third year in row that Twitter has streamed PGA Tour events - the relationship started with the 2016 FedEx Cup Playoffs. It's tough as you want to go at the pin and you know there is that bail out right but that's a tough up-and-down. "I got nervous coming down the stretch but I was able to pull off some shots".

Schauffele bogeyed the first hole on Sunday yet by the time he reached the 18th green he faced an 11-foot putt for a third eagle of the day and the course record. Woodland had five birdies in his 68 for 270. "But, overall, it's been a positive week even though I wish I would have played a little better".

"I'm definitely freed up", he said.

"The next step in my career is to learn to be cool under the gun, having a lead and maintaining it. I played great", Woodland told the Golf Channel.

Woodland, who has won three times in 231 starts on the PGA Tour, said his patience had been tested on a day that started extremely windy before abating somewhat as the leaders negotiated the back nine.

"I've been in this position before but I'm a completely different kind of player now".

"She's been downhill for a little while now", Woodland said.
