Wagner claims Sony Open triumph as Every blows golden opportunity in Hawaii
Johnson Wagner picked up his third PGA Tour win at the Sony Open in Hawaii, with a final round of 67 enough to claim a two-shot victory.
Wagner was three under for the day and 13 over the event, but overnight leader Matt Every missed his chance to push for the title as he shot two over to finish tied for sixth.
Four players were level in second on 11 under, with each player in with a chance of victory at some point during the day.

Carl Petterson, Sean O'Hair and Harrison Frazar all matched Wagner's 67 on the day but needed more to press for victory, while Charles Howell III managed only one under, his worst round of competition.
Wagner's day had started with a bogey five and although he picked a shot right back up at the second he added a second bogey on six.

He again followed that with a birdie at the next hole and went round the back nine in three under, with a pressure putt from the sleeve of the green on the 15th the highlight.
Wagner almost gave himself an unnecessary problem on the final green when he left a birdie attempt short and then almost botched the tap-in putt, but luck stayed with him.

'I was a little shaky (on the last),' he told Sky Sports 1. 'To leave that birdie shot short was a little pathetic but I knew I was safe.
'I'm really excited. I've worked so hard in the off-season with my trainer, my caddie, and I told everyone I was going to win early this year. It feels good to have done it.'
