Lim Seong-jae (25) was pushed down to the middle rank in the second round of the RBC Heritage (total prize money of 20 million dollars) of the PGA Tour’s ‘Special Tournament’.
Im Seong-jae caught 3 birdies in the 2nd round of the tournament held at Harbor Town Golf Links (par 71) in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA on the 15th (Korean time), but committed 2 bogeys and 1 double bogey and finished 1 over par 72 hit it
Lim Seong-jae, who recorded a total of 4 under par 138 strokes until the second round, fell 29 places from a tie for 5th the previous day to a tie for 34th.
This tournament is one of the special events designated by the PGA Tour. The total prize money jumped from $8 million last year to $20 million. Accordingly, it consists of a major-level field in which seven of the world’s top 10 players, including world number one John Lahm (Spain) and Scotty Scheffler (USA), who won the Masters last week, participated.
Lim Seong-jae, who was in the lead the day before, fell into the bunker three times that day, but all of them failed to make a save, leaving regret. He seemed to be cruising with birdies on holes 1 (par 4) and 5 (par 5) in the first half, but his second shot on hole 8 (par 4) fell into the greenside bunker and committed a bogey.
In the 9th hole (par 4), he took an approach shot with 24m left and went into the bunker in front of the green, and Im Seong-jae could not get out of the bunker at once. After reaching the green after the fourth shot, he eventually recorded a double bogey on this hole.
Im Seong-jae caught a birdie again in the 13th hole (par 4), but in the 14th hole (par 3), the tee shot went into the water and wrote down the bogey, so he played a round that left regret.
Lee Kyung-hoon (32)토스카지노 succeeded in passing the cut with a 2 under par 140 stroke for 60th place, and Kim Joo-hyung (21) failed to advance to the third round with 1 under par 141 stroke, one stroke short of the cutoff. Kim Si-woo (28) also missed the cut with a 2-over par and 144 strokes.
Veteran’ Jimmy Walker (USA) cut 6 strokes each for two days, recording a total of 12 under par 130 strokes and took the lead by 3 strokes. Having suffered from Lyme disease, which is transmitted by ticks, he will challenge for a total of 7 wins in 6 years and 10 months after winning the PGA Championship in a major tournament in June 2016.
After winning in 2016, Walker took a break from his touring career due to a battle with Lyme disease, and it was unclear if he would ever return. With the launch of LIV Golf last year, all records of LIV golf players were erased from the PGA Tour, and Walker climbed to 50th on the all-time money list, securing a tour seed. He missed the cut eight times in 12 contests this season, but this time he had a chance to win.
The pursuers are not formidable. Distinguished players such as Schaeffler, who is ranked second in the world rankings, Zander Shopley (USA), gold medalist at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, and Justin Rose (England), who won one this year, are pursuing Walker with a tie for second place (9 under par, 133 strokes) by three strokes.
Patrick Cantley (USA), who recorded a hole-in-one, and Victor Hovlan (Norway) and Tommy Fleetwood (England), who were leaders in the first round, were tied for 5th place (8 under par, 134 strokes) and were placed in the group.
Last week at the Masters, Ram, who wore a green jacket for the first time in his life, stayed tied for 92nd in the first round as if he had an aftermath of fatigue, but in the second round he jumped to a tie for 18th (6 under par, 136 strokes) by catching 7 birdies without a bogey. . In the remaining two rounds, he is 6 strokes away from the leader, Walker, and tries again to compete for the championship.
