Kim Sung-hyun tied for 2nd in 3R… First win ‘a swollen dream’
Kim Sung-hyun (25-Shinhan Financial Group-photo) made his PGA Tour debut in the 2022-2023 season after earning Rookie of the Year honors on the Confederation Tour, the second tier of the United States Professional Golf (PGA) Tour. However, in 32 tournaments, his only top-10 finish was a fourth-place finish at the ShrinersChildren’s Open last October.먹튀검증
Thirsty for a win, Sung Hyun Kim has a chance to get his first career victory. Kim carded five birdies and two bogeys for a 3-under 69 in the third round of the Fortinet Championship ($8.4 million purse) on Sunday at Silverado Resort and Spa (par-72, 7123 yards) in Napa, Calif. His 15-under-par 201 total puts him in a tie for second place with Justin Thomas (USA) and Cam Davies (AUS). He is two strokes behind leader Sahis Sigala (USA, 25), who will be looking for an upset win on the final day.
Kim was tied for the lead with Sigala the day before, but he was unable to cut down his strokes like he did in rounds one and two and lost the lead. After birdies on the fifth (par-5) and 12th (par-5), Kim was in trouble with back-to-back bogeys on the 13th (par-4) and 14th (par-4). On the 13th, his tee shot landed in the rough to the right of the fairway, and on the 14th, his second shot landed in the rough to the left of the green. On the 15th hole (par-5), Sung Hyun Kim found himself in the bunker in front of the green, but he turned things around with a precise bunker shot that placed his ball 1.5 to the side of the hole for birdie. He followed that up with back-to-back birdies at the 16th (par-4) and 17th (par-3) to get back into contention.
Lee Kyung-hoon (32) dropped three strokes with four birdies and a bogey to remain in a tie for 11th place at 10-under-par 206. Sang-Moon Bae (37), who was third the previous day, slipped to a 3-over 75 with two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey to drop to a tie for 18th (8-under 208).
