Honolulu - Masters champion Adam Scott made an ominous move up the leaderboard late in the day after little-known American Brian Stuard had seized control of the $5.6 million Sony Open in Hawaii during Friday's second round.

That left Stuard one stroke in front of Australian Marc Leishman (64) and Japan's Hideto Tanihara (65), with American Harris English (66) a further shot back at eight under.

Due to a forecast for poor weather on Saturday, tee times have been brought forward for the third round.
