Los Angeles  - Zac Blair had six birdies in a six-under par 64 on Saturday grab a share of the third-round lead alongside Brandt Snedeker at the US PGA Tour Sony Open in Hawaii.

Blair had a chance to take sole possession of the lead in the $5.8 million tournament at Waialea Country Club in Honolulu, but missed a birdie putt from inside three feet at the 18th.

The 25-year-old goes into the final round in search of his first PGA Tour title tied with seven-time tour winner Snedeker on 16-under par 194.

Overnight leader Snedeker carded a bogey-free four-under par 66.

The leaders were one stroke in front of American Kevin Kisner, who carded a 66 for 195.

Kisner shook off a bogey at the par-three 17th to birdie 18 and secure his spot in Sunday's final group.

South Korean Kim Si-Woo, 20, capped his round with a birdie at 17 and an eagle at 18 for a 65 that left him two off the pace on 196 -- two shots in front of Argentina's Fabian Gomez, who carded a 65 for 198.
