Henley Russell Henley of the US waves to the gallery after putting for a birdie on the second green during the third round of the Sony Open golf tournament in Honolulu, Hawaii January 12, 2013.

Honolulu - PGA Tour rookies Russell Henley and Scott Langley share the lead at the Sony Open after Saturday's third round and will play one more round together on Sunday, with a trophy and a Masters invitation at stake.

Henley two-putted from 30 feet for birdie on the last hole for a 3-under 67. That gave him a share of the lead with Langley, who had a 65. They set the tournament scoring record through 54 holes at 17-under 193 and had a three-shot lead over Tim Clark.

Henley and Langley each have a chance to become the first rookies to win in their PGA Tour debut since Garrett Willis at the 2001 Tucson Open. - Sapa-AP
