HONOLULU — Scott Langley and Russell Henley joked around as if they were a couple of rookies fresh out of college.
They sure don't play like rookies.
After they set the Sony Open scoring record at 17-under 193 to share the lead, Henley walked into a news conference Saturday evening and realized Langley, who moments earlier had been sitting in the same chair, left behind his PGA Tour credentials and sunglasses.
Langley came back into the room — turns out he forgot his golf clubs, too — and Henley waved the credentials and called out to him, "What a rookie."
Put them on the golf course, though, and they look awfully tough to beat.
Langley relied on his stinger 3-wood on the fast fairways of Waialae and another solid round putting for a 5-under 65.
Henley took a suspect swing from the range and made it work on the course, turning a so-so round into a 67 by keeping bogeys off his card for the second straight day.
At Durban, South Africa, Scott Jamieson of Scotland had a 4-under 68 and took a five-shot lead in the Volvo Champions, while Louis Oosthuizen faded in the third round at Durban Country Club.
Jamieson began the day a stroke behind the former British Open champion, but finished with a 15-under total to lead Oosthuizen (74), Thongchai Jaidee of Thailand (73) and Julien Quesne of France (67).
Padraig Harrington (67) and Francesco Molinari (68) were another two strokes back in the event for European Tour winners.
Jamieson won his first European Tour title a month ago in the season-opening Nelson Mandela Championship. Now he's one round away from earning the "Durban Double.
