Golfer Kim Joo-hyung “10 Under” Daily Best…Joint 3rd place jump with Im Sungjae.
New Nike man Kim Joo-hyung (20) hit a storm shot at the PGA Tour American Express.
On the second day of the tournament held at the PGA West Stadium Course (par 72, 7,187 yards) in Lakinta, California, on the 20th, golfer Kim Joo-hyung reduced 10 strokes, including one eagle and eight birdies, to 13 under par, bringing his ranking from 60th the previous day to 3rd place.
Kim Joo-hyung, who started the game on the 10th hole (par 4), showed his best shot sense by reducing four shots only in the first three holes, including an eagle on the 11th hole (par 5) and a birdie on the 12th hole (par 3).
Kim Joo-hyung, who made consecutive birdies on the 15th hole (par 5) and 16th hole (par 4), reduced six strokes in the first nine holes. Kim Joo-hyung, who continued his birdie from the first hole (11th hole, par 4) in the second half, finished the last 9th hole (par 4) with a birdie and recorded a 10-under-par daily best.
Lim Sung-jae (24), who was eliminated from the cut at the Sony Open earlier, also showed a different appearance in this tournament and is in a position to aim for a come-from-behind victory.
Lim Sung-jae recorded six birdies, including an eagle on the fifth hole (par 5). It was a bit disappointing to see on the 9th hole (par 4) and the 13th hole (par 3), but he is tied for 3rd place alongside Kim Joo-hyung, reducing a total of 6 strokes.
Kim Si-woo (27), a new groom who won the Sony Open last week, also made a turnaround by raising his ranking.
Kim Si-woo, who was tied for 85th the previous day, hit eight birdies without a bogey to tie for 14th with a 10-under 134 total.
After finishing the third round, this tournament will determine the players who failed to make the cut.
