HONOLULU, Jan. 14 (UPI) -- Matt Every set himself up for a potential breakthrough weekend on the PGA Tour Friday by moving two shots in front midway through the Sony Open.
Every, who graduated to the PGA circuit by finishing among the top 25 money winners last year on the Nationwide Tour, shot a 6-under 64 at the Waialae Country Club for a 36-hole total of 10-under 130.
He has finished in the Top 10 of a tour event just once in his career.
Cauley, 21, is the seventh player to join the tour without going through a qualifying tournament or spending time on the Nationwide circuit. He followed his opening-round 66 with a 68 Friday.
Steve Stricker, winner of the Tournament of Champions last week, was tied for 17th at 135.
