Sean O'Hair off to great start

West Chester’s Sean O’Hair has gotten his 2012 PGA Tour season off to a terrific start.

The 29-year-old O’Hair fired rounds of 67, 67, 68 and 67 to finish in a tie for second place last weekend at the Sony Open in Hawaii, two strokes behind winner Johnson Wagner, and flew home with a check for $363,000.

The previous week, O’Hair wound up in 17th place at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Maui. He followed an even-par 73 with rounds of 70, 70 and 69.

Through two events, O’Hair is fifth on the money list with $462,000 and tied for fifth in the FedEx Cup points race. His world ranking has risen to 66th.

O’Hair is sitting out this week’s Humana Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation.
