Bae Sang-moon (35) and Noh Seung-yeol (30) advanced to the finals on the PGA Tour, a ‘league of their own’ without all the top players.
Bae Sang-moon took two shots in the second round of the PGA Tour Butterfield Bermuda Championship ($6.5 million in total prize money, $ 1.17 million in prize money) held at Fort Royal Golf Club (par 71, 6828 yards) in Southampton, Bermuda on the 30th (Korean time). He was tied for 46th with a total of 2 under par 140, down 11 places from the previous day.
Bae Sang-moon recorded 5 birdies and 3 bogeys that day.
Noh Seung-yeol reduced two strokes to six birdies and four bogeys, and finished tied for 63rd with a total of even par 142. He advanced to the 3rd round with ‘Tuck-up’.
For Korea, Bae Sang-moon and Lee Kyung-hoon (30) tied for 58th in 2019, which is the best record in the history of this tournament.
Taylor Pendris (30, Canada), who won two on the PGA Canada Tour, cut a whopping 10 strokes and hit a total of 11 under par 131, beating Patrick Rogers (USA) by one stroke and jumping from the tie 26th the previous day to the solo lead.
Pendris hit a 10-under 61 with one eagle, nine birdies, and one bogey that day.
New Zealand Korean Danny Lee (Korean name: Jinmyung Lee) reduced four strokes to a total of 8-under 134 and maintained a tie with David Skins (England) in fourth place.
Matthew Fitzpatrick (England), 26th in the world rankings, also tied for 34th with a 3-under-par 139.
This tournament is a golden opportunity for players who are unhappy with one win as many of the top rankers do not attend, perhaps due to Bermuda’s strengthening of quarantine measures against COVID-19 and the fifth lowest prize money on the PGA Tour.
JTBC Golf & Sports will broadcast the third round live from 1:45 am on the 31st.
