South Korea’s Joo Hyung Kim (pictured) has jumped to the top of the leaderboard at the BMW PGA Championship ($9 million purse), the fourth stop on the DP World Tour’s Rolex Series.
Kim shot a 5-under 67 on the second day of play at the par-72 Wentworth Golf Club in Surrey, near London, England, on Saturday (Sept. 16) to sit in a tie for 10th place with Tyrrell Hatton (England) at 7-under 137.안전놀이터
After carding four birdies and two bogeys on the first day, Kim shaved two strokes off her score with seven birdies and one double bogey on the second day. After getting off to a good start with a birdie on the first hole, Kim dropped two strokes on the par-3 second after a bad tee shot. Her tee shot was 23 yards short of the green and her second shot from the rough was only five yards forward. He then sent his third shot to the fringe of the green and holed out for a double bogey. However, Kim reeled off six birdies on the back nine to move up the leaderboard.
The ‘Swedish duo’ of Sebastian Soderberg and Ludvig Alberg are one shot off the lead after carding eight and six on the day, respectively, to sit at 10-under-par 134. Home course favorite Tommy Fleetwood (England) shaved six strokes off his score with back-to-back birdies on the 17th and 18th holes to sit in a three-way tie for third place at 9-under par 135, one stroke behind Thomas Detrie (Belgium) and Masahiro Kawamura (Japan).
Lee Minwoo (AUS) carded five birdies without a bogey to move into a tie for 16th place at 6-under par 138. Lee reeled off three straight birdies, especially on his final three holes, to move up 31 spots in the standings.
Rory McIlroy (NORTHERN IRELAND), who struggled on day one, made the cut by one stroke with four birdies and a double bogey to finish in a tie for 61st place at 1-under par 143.
