Els moves into contention in Hawaii
Defending champion Ernie Els kept alive his hopes of successive victories in the Sony Open in Hawaii when he moved into third place at the halfway stage of the US PGA Tour event at the Waialae Country Club in Honolulu.    


The 2003 Volvo Order of Merit winner carded a flawless, six birdie, second round 64 for a nine under par total of 131, to lie two shots behind leader Australian Steve Allan, who went two better than the South African with a sparking 62.

European Tour interest was maintained in the upper echelons of the leaderboard by England’s Luke Donald, who moved into fourth place on eight under par 132 after his second consecutive 66, while Sweden’s Jesper Parnevik stood in a tie for fifth on 133.

Fourteen year old Michelle Wie, who had made history by becoming the youngest player in history to compete in a US PGA Tour event, missed the cut by one shot despite a courageous second round 68. Nothern Ireland's Darren Clarke also missed the cut by one.
