Lim Seong-jae was ranked tied for 34th in the second round of the PGA Tour RBC Heritage (total prize money of $20 million).
In the second round of the tournament held at Harbor Town Golf Links (par 71, 7,121 yards) in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, USA on the 15th (Korean time) on the 15th (Korean time), 3 birdies, 2 bogeys, and 1 double bogey, 1 over par 72 hit it
Lim Seong-jae, who scored an interim total of 4 under par 138, slipped from a tie for 5th the previous day to a tie for 34th.
Im Seong-jae, who was cruising with birdies on holes 1 and 5, bogey and double bogey on holes 8 and 9 put a brake on his upward trend.
He entered the bunker on the left side of the green with the second shot of hole 8 (par 4), and also made three putts. In the 9th hole (par 4), he struggled as both his second and third shots headed for the bunker.
However, Im Seong-jae has a 3-stroke gap with the players tied for 10th, so depending on the results of the remaining 3rd and 4th rounds, we can look at the top standings.
Jimmy Walker (USA), who hit 6 under par two days in a row, rose to the top by 3 shots with 130 strokes at 12 under par.
Walker will try to win 7 tours in 6 years and 9 months since the PGA Championship, a major tournament in July 2016.메이저놀이터
