A dark cloud over Kang Sung-hoon (36)’s challenge to enter the top 10 of the PGA Tour Corales Puntacana Championship (total prize money of 3.8 million dollars).
In the third round of the tournament held at the Corales Golf Club (par 72) in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic on the 26th (Korean time), Kang Sung-hoon scored a 2 under par 70 and tied for 31st (5 under par 211 strokes).
He recorded under-par scores all three days, but it is not easy to catch up in the final round as the number of strokes with 10th place Bryce Garnett (USA, 10 under par 206 strokes) is wide by 5 strokes.
Kang Seong-hoon, whose chances to play have been greatly reduced due to his sluggish performance last year, participated in seven tournaments this season and passed the cut only twice, and his best finish was a tie for 29th. 메이저놀이터
That’s why the top-ranking results are cut, but even in this tournament, where no player within the 70th place in the world rankings participated, it is in the middle position.
Roh Seung-yeol (32), who is as busy as Kang Sung-hoon, will enter the final round with a tie for 38th place (4 under par, 212 strokes).
Noh Seung-yeol cut 4 strokes that day to get out of the bottom ranks, but there is still a big difference from the top ranks.
Bae Sang-moon (37) lost 6 strokes and fell to a tie for 71st (5 over par 221 strokes).
Nikolai Hoygor (Denmark) and Sam Stevens (USA) tied for the lead with 14 under par and 202 strokes, and will face off on the final day for the first championship in their career.
Hoygor shot a 6-under-par 66, and Stevens cut four strokes.
Thomas Detri (Belgium), Wyndham Clarke, Taylor Duncan (Above USA), and Matt Wallace (England) tied for third place by one stroke.
