Maggert rolls back the years to join Every at top of leaderboard in Hawaii
Veteran Jeff Maggert joined overnight leader Matt Every on top of the leaderboard and two shots ahead of the pack at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
Maggert, 47, signed for a six-under score of 64 to reach 12 under for the tournament and was alone at the summit until Every birdied on the 18th green to join him.
Maggert won his third and last PGA title in May 2006 but is now firmly in contention heading into the final round.

He picked up his first birdie of the day at the fourth and then kickstarted his round on the par-five ninth with an eagle three.
Three more birdies followed on the back nine, with no dropped shots in the round.
Every, carrying a two-shot lead into the day's play, started disappointingly with a bogey at the second.
But he soon located his form and birdied at six, seven and nine to take the front nine in two under.
He did not carry that hot streak on, though, and was level after the turn when he collected a stroke on the 16th and regained it with four shots on 18th.
In with a shout: Matt Every now shares the lead but will fancy his chances
A group of three lie in wait on 10 under and Johnson Wagner, Brendon de Jonge and Charles Howell III will all be hoping to make their move tomorrow.
Wagner and Howell both took 66 shots on the day, with De Jonge five shots shy of his stunning second round 62.
DA Points and Duffy Waldorf are tied for sixth on nine under, with a further 11 players another shot back.
Yesterday's second-placed pair of Carl Pettersson and David Hearn are both in that group after losing ground with level-par 70s.
