 Kang Sung-hoon tied for 35th in the second round of the PGA Tour Corales Puntacana Championship (total prize money: $3.8 million).

On the 25th (Korean time) at the Corales Golf Club (par 72, 7,670 yards) in Puntacana, Dominican Republic, Kang Seong-hoon tied 5 birdies, 1 bogey, and 1 double bogey and hit 2 under par 70.카지노사이트

Kang Seong-hoon, who tied for 26th with a 1-under 71 in the first round, shot a total of 3-under 141 over two days to round the halfway point to tie for 35th.

Although the ranking was slightly lower than the first day, Kang Seong-hun, who recorded under par scores two days in a row, tied for 10th place (6 under par, 138 strokes) and was 3 strokes away, so he could aim for a high jump for the remaining two days.

The Corales Puntacana Championship is held during the same period as the World Golf Championship (WGC) Dell Technologies Match Play, a large tournament with a total prize pool of $20 million.

As players who cannot compete in match play with top players usually participate in this tournament, it is also an opportunity for players in the lower middle of the tour to aim for a higher ranking.

Kang Sung-hoon succeeded in passing the cut in the third out of eight PGA Tour events this season.

Starting from the 10th hole that day, Kang Seong-hoon cruised until the 3rd hole (par 4), picking up 4 birdies, but made his first bogey at the 5th hole (par 4). He made up for one stroke in hole 7 (par 5), but the finish was disappointing with a double bogey in hole 9 (par 3).

Other Korean players who competed in this tournament also passed the cut.

Bae Sang-moon cut 3 strokes on the day and recorded an intermediate total of 1 under par, 143 strokes, and jumped 21 steps to a tie for 52nd place.

The leader is Matt Wallis (England) with 11 under par and 133 strokes.

Wallace, who finished third with a 5-under par on the first day, will hit a 6-under par without a bogey and climb to the top of the leaderboard to challenge for his first PGA Tour victory.

Sam Stevens and Wyndham Clark (above USA) reduced 7 strokes each day to finish tied for second place (10 under par, 134 strokes) by one stroke.

Michael Kim tied for 19th (5 under par, 139 strokes), and Doug Kim (above USA) finished the second round with a tie for 28th (4 under par, 140 strokes).
