It’s two wins in a row for Sony Open winner Si Woo Kim.
After the first round of the PGA Tour’s Charles Schwab Challenge ($8.7 million purse) at Colonial Country Club (par 70-7209) in Fort Worth, Texas, U.S., on Friday (Sept. 25), Kim is tied for seventh place at 3-under par. Harry Hall (England) leads (8-under 62), Harris English is second (5-under 65) and Tom Hoag, Adam Schenck and Andrew Putnam (USA) are tied for third (4-under 66).
Kim had five birdies and two bogeys. She got off to a strong start with three straight birdies on Nos. 10-12. However, the rest of the way, she traded two birdies for two bogeys. His longest shots were up to 337 yards. Five strokes off the lead and a chance for his second win of the season and fifth career victory in four months after winning the Sony Open in January.
Hall made eight birdies without a bogey. He is a rookie making his PGA Tour debut this season. He is ranked 197th in the world and his best finish was a tie for seventh at the Puerto Rico Open in March. World No. 1 Scotty Schauffler, defending champion Sam Burns and Billy Horschel (USA) tied for seventh. Club pro Michael Block (USA), who became a “lightning rod” after tying for 15th at last week’s PGA Championship, struggled to a tie for 120th (11-over par 81).스포츠토토
