Kim Siu-Ahn Byung-Hoon and Charles Schwab tied for 7th place

Si-Woo Kim, 28, and Byung-Hoon Ahn, 32, dropped three strokes on the first day of the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour’s Charles Schwab Challenge ($8.7 million) to finish in a tie for seventh place, five shots behind leader Harry Hall (England).

Kim carded five birdies and two bogeys for a three-under 67 in the first round at Colonial Country Club (Par 70, 7209 yards) in Fort Worth, Texas (USA) on 26 June. Starting on the 10th hole, Kim birdied three straight holes before trading birdies and bogeys on the 15th and 16th. In the second half, she birdied the first hole but bogeyed the seventh.토토사이트

“I had a good start today with three birdies in a row,” Kim said after the round, “but the wind picked up in the second half and it was a little difficult to keep the fairway.” “I think it’s one of the most difficult tournaments to stay in the fairway, but when it’s windy, the tee shots get harder and harder, so I think I’ll have to stay in the fairway tomorrow,” he said.

Kim, who made it four wins in a row at the Sony Open in January this year, has been in fine form of late, finishing tied for second at the AT&T Byron Nelson two weeks ago.

Ahn birdied four straight holes from the 11th to move into the lead. He dropped another shot on the back to move into sole possession of second place. However, he dropped a shot on the fourth and sixth holes to slip down the leaderboard. His best finish was a tie for sixth at the Valero Texas Open in April.

Harry Hall (England), who has yet to win on tour, shot a career-best eight-under-par 62, including a chip shot off the green at the 12th that went in for a birdie. Harris English (USA) birdied the last two holes for a five-under 65 to move into second place.

Tom Hoag, Adam Shank, Robbie Selton and Andrew Putnam (USA) are tied for third at four under par. Defending champion Sam Burns (USA), last year’s runner-up in a playoff, Scotty Schaeffler (USA), Korean-American Michael Kim and provisional qualifier Min Woo Lee (AUS) formed a group of seven alongside Kim and Byung Hoon Ahn.

Lee Kyung-hoon, 32, shot a two-under 68 and is tied for 22nd with Korean-Americans Justin Seo and Rickie Fowler (USA). Lim Sung-jae, 25, who finished 15th in this event last year, is two shots off the pace and tied for 82nd, while Kim Sung-hyun, 25, is five over par and tied for 111th.

Michael Block (USA), who tied for 15th at last week’s PGA Championship and is playing as an invitee, collapsed with three double bogeys on the back to finish at 11-over-par 81 and tied for last in the 120-man field.

JTBC Golf & Sports will provide live coverage of round two from 5am on the 27th. Rounds three and four on the 28th and 29th will see the champion crowned from 2am.
