Siwoo Kim, tied for 11th place in PGA Memorial Tournament 2R Schaeffler takes the lead

Kim Si-woo tied for 11th place in the second round of the PGA Tour Memorial Tournament (total prize money of $20 million).

Siwoo Kim hit 2 under par 70 with 4 birdies and 2 bogeys in the second round of the tournament held at Muirfield Billy Golf Club (par 72, 7,569 yards) in Dublin, Ohio, USA on the 8th (Korean time).

Kim Si-woo, who recorded an interim total of 142 strokes at 2 under par, settled in a tie for 11th place, up 15 places from the previous day.

He is 7 strokes behind sole leader Scotty Scheffler (9 under par, 135 strokes, USA).

Kim Si-woo, who has 4 wins in total, has passed the cut 14 times in 15 competitions this season, and his only top 10 finish is a tie for 6th place at the Players Championship in March.

He is determined to shake off the sluggishness of finishing tied for 56th in the Charles Schwab Challenge after missing the cut at the PGA Championship last month.

Kim Si-woo suffered a bogey on the 4th hole (par 3) when his tee shot fell into a bunker next to the green, but made up for it with a birdie on the 5th hole (par 5).

Kim Si-woo, who recorded a birdie and a bogey at the 11th hole (par 5) and the 13th pole (par 4), continued to reduce the number of strokes at the 14th hole (par 4) and the 18th hole (par 4).

Byung-Hoon An lost one stroke with 4 birdies and 5 bogeys and was tied for 20th place (even par, 144 strokes).

Kim Joo-hyung, who had tied for 12th place the day before, had 4 birdies, 3 bogeys, and 2 double bogeys and went down to tied 29th place (1 over par, 145 strokes).

While the putting was shaky overall, the tee shot fell into the water in the 14th hole (par 4), and a double bogey occurred in the 15th hole (par 5) due to a mistake of not hitting the approach shot on the green.

Seongjae Lim barely passed the cut with a tie for 43rd place (3 over par, 147 strokes). The standard for passing the cut is 4 over par.

Scheffler recorded 1 eagle, 4 birdies, and 2 bogeys on this day, hitting 4 under par and taking the sole lead. He is tied for second place, three strokes behind Adam Hadwin (Canada) and Viktor Hovland (Norway).

Schaeffler won four major tournaments this year, including the Masters, and finished second twice and third place once. 섯다
