It took only a few hours for the first ace of 2019 to be recorded on the PGA Tour.

Meanwhile, defending Kapalua champion Dustin Johnson had a freaky rules gaffe on the par-4 fourth hole.

The Northern Irish star carded a second-round 68 - which included six birdies and four from his final seven holes - to be within striking distance of leader Gary Woodland at the halfway stage on Friday.

Kevin Tway first played Kapalua as a 15-year-old a week before his father competed in the Sentry Tournament of Champions for the first time, an experience memorable for Bob Tway getting stung by a centipede and having to only watch. Johnson and Thomas are the past two winners at Kapalua.

The same could not be said for Dustin Johnson who was slapped with a two-stroke penalty for playing the wrong ball and finished with a one-over 74. "But I didn't think I was going to play that good, to be honest", he said. "Each shot's hard so you're just focused on the trajectory and where I need to land it and where I need to miss it". It's windy where I'm from in Oklahoma so it's kind of like I was at home.

The first round of the new year featured a hole-in-one by Patton Kizzire who is at four under. Now at 6-foot-3, the same frame as his father, Tway is hopeful that is good start might allow him to become only the fourth player to win Kapalua in his debut since the Tournament of Champions moved here in 1999.

"I'm comfortable on this golf course and I've enjoyed the last couple of days like flighting different shots, hitting different trajectories and with all the technical work I have had to do in the off-season, it is a real contrast to come out here and completely forget about the swing and just hit the shots", he said.
