Now there are only 18 holes left. Kim Si-woo and Yoo Hae-ran challenge the “companion come-from-behind championship” on the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour and the US Women’s Professional Golf (LPGA) Tour on the same day.
On the 14th (Korean time), the 3rd round of the PGA Tour AT&T Byron Nelson held at TPC Craig Ranch (par 71) in McKinney, Texas, USA. Kim Si-woo caught 3 birdies without bogey. Kim Si-woo, who made an interim total of 14 under par 199 strokes, tied for fourth place with Scotty Scheffler (USA) and Jason Day (Australia). Austin Ekkrott, Ryan Palmer (above), and Dou Zecheng (China) tied for the lead with an interim total of 16-under 197.
After looking back, Siwoo Kim said, “The overall shot didn’t go well and the putt didn’t go well,” he said, “I tried to keep my ranking as much as possible and focus on the game.” He then expressed his wish for a come-from-behind victory, saying, “It’s really nice to have a tournament 15 minutes away from home. I feel comfortable and I hope the results are good.”
Kang Seong-hoon, the winner of this tournament in 2019, tied for 8th place with a median total of 13 under par and 200 strokes, and Bae Sang-moon, who was invited to participate with Ahn Byeong-hoon, tied for 15th place with an interim total of 11 under par and 202 strokes. Kim Joo-hyung and “defending champion” Lee Kyung-hoon cut 2 strokes and 3 strokes, respectively, but tied for 58th place with a median total of 7 under par 206 strokes.
On the LPGA Tour, Yoo Hae-ran, a rookie this season, is in a good position to aim for a come-from-behind victory. Hae-Ran Yu reduced 4 strokes with 6 birdies and 2 bogeys in the third round of the Cognitive Founders Cup on the LPGA Tour held at the Upper Monclair Country Club (par 72) in Clifton, New Jersey, USA on the same day. Yoo Hae-ran, who made an interim total of 9 under par and 207 strokes, tied for second place, three strokes behind the solo leader Lee Min-ji (Australia).
Yoo Hae-ran said, “If I win my first championship tomorrow, it will be very honorable. It’s a pity that the iron was inaccurate in the second half of today, but tomorrow I will solve the game a little more cleverly.”메이저놀이터
