‘6 under par’ Byeong-Hoon An, tied for lead in 2nd round of PGA Sony Open “We must improve every year”

Byung-Hoon An is smiling after catching a birdie on the 18th green in the second round of the Sony Open on the PGA Tour held at Waialai CC in Honolulu, Hawaii, on the 12th (local time). Byeong-Hoon An, who was tied for 16th place on the first day, rose to the joint lead with a total of 9 under par and 131 strokes.

Byung-Hoon An (33, CJ) took the lead with a hard hit in the second round of the PGA Tour Sony Open (total prize money of $8.3 million).

On the second day of the tournament held at Waialai Country Club (par 70) in Honolulu, Hawaii, USA on the 13th (Korean time), Byeong-Hoon An made six birdies without bogeys and recorded 6 under par 64 strokes.

With a midterm total of 9 under par and 131 strokes, Byung-Hoon An became tied for the lead with Carl Yuan (China) and Austin Eckrot (USA). It rose 17 places from the previous day’s tie for 18th place.

It is one stroke behind the group tied for 4th place, including Ben Griffin (USA) and Cam Davis (Australia, 8 under par, 132 strokes). 51-year-old veteran Stuart Sink (USA) also joined the group in a tie for 4th place, scoring 5 under par on this day.

Byung-Hoon An, who won the 2015 European Tour (now DP World Tour) BMW Championship, returned to the regular tour in the 2022-23 season after completing the second division of the PGA Tour.

However, in October of last year, he was caught in a doping test after taking cold medicine and was suspended for three months, but returned from the opening game of this year.

Byeong-Hoon An finished in 4th place in the opening match held last week, the best result among Korean players, and is continuing his good sense in the second competition.

Byung-Hoon An got off to a good start by catching a birdie from 9 meters away on the 2nd hole (par 4). Afterwards, he continued his par streak and made consecutive birdies at the 8th hole (par 4) and 9th hole (par 5).

Stable performance continued in the second half. Byung-Hoon An raised his ranking by making consecutive birdies in the 12th hole (par 4) and 13th hole (par 4).

He then added a birdie in the final 18th hole (par 5) and finished the match tied for the lead.

Byung-Hoon An said after the game, “Although he is quite a bit older, he still has a lot of areas to improve, and I also feel like he is improving every year. “I’m going to pedal hard,” he said.

“Obviously winning is his life’s goal, but I think he’s had a decent career so far,” said the runner-up four times on the PGA Tour. “More than anything, it’s important for him to continue playing on the PGA Tour,” he added.

Seonghyun Kim (26, Shinhan Financial Group) also had a good game. Like Byeong-Hoon An, Seong-Hyun Kim made 6 birdies without making any bogeys and added 6-under par.

Kim Seong-hyun, who had performed poorly in the first round at 1 over par, had a midterm total of 5 under par 135 strokes, raising his ranking from 92nd to a tie for 25th.

Seong-Hyun Kim, who joined the PGA Tour last season and recorded ‘Top 10’ twice in 36 competitions, is showing not bad performance in his first competition of the season.

Kim Si-woo (29, CJ), who is aiming for his second consecutive victory in the competition, also marked the same ranking as Kim Seong-hyun.

Kim Si-woo added 4 under par with two birdies and an eagle on this day’s ‘No Bogey’, recording an interim total of 5 under par.

The gap with the leading group, including Byeong-hun An, is only 4 strokes, so there is ample room for a turnaround in the remaining two days.

Lee Gyeong-hoon (33, CJ) passed the cut in a tie for 55th place with a midterm total of 3 under par 137 strokes. 카지노사이트존
