Sungjae Lim made a pleasant comeback in the second round of the FedExCup Playoffs on the U.S. Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour.
Sungjae Lim carded five birdies and three bogeys for a 2-under 68 in the second round of the BMW Championship ($20 million purse) at Olympia Fields Country Club (par 70-7,366 yards) in Olympia Fields, Illinois, USA, on Monday (Sept. 19).
His four-under-par 136 total puts him in a tie for 10th place with Patrick Cantlay and Xander Schauffele (USA). They are six strokes behind leader Max Homa (USA – 10-under 130).
The event is open only to players in the top 50 on the FedExCup points list after the first round of the playoffs, the FedEx St. Jude Championship.
After this event, only the top 30 players will advance to the season finale, the Tour Championship.

Lim dropped birdies on the second (par-4) and sixth (par-3) holes of the day before trading three birdies for three bogeys in the second half.
At the 11th (par-4) and 14th (par-4), he nearly made eagle with his approach shots to within a meter of the hole. On the 17th (par-4), he dropped a 4.4-meter birdie putt.
Ahn finished the day with four birdies and a bogey for a 3-under-par total of 137, good for a tie for 13th place.
