Saturday's Golf Capsules

HONOLULU (AP) — Stuart Appleby finished with three straight birdies to tie Shigeki Maruyama for the lead Saturday at the Sony Open, setting up a long final round in which just about everyone is still in the game.

Because play Thursday was washed out at Waialae, Sunday will feature a 36-hole final.

Maruyama holed out from the bunker to the right of the par-3 seventh late in his round and shot another 65. Appleby had a strong finish for the second straight day and shot 66. They were at 10-under 130.

Roland Thatcher (65), Mark Wilson (67) and Steve Marino (67) were a stroke back.

Joburg Open

JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Defending champion Charl Schwartzel shot a 2-under 69 for a share of the Joburg Open lead with fellow South Africans Thomas Aiken and Garth Mulroy.

Mulroy also had a 69, and Aiken shot a 68 to match Schwartzel at 15-under 198. Scotland’s David Drysdale (67) was a stroke back in the event sanctioned by the European and Sunshine tours.
