[아시아경제 김현준 골프전문기자] “Leading on the third day.”
‘Texas Boy’ Jordan Spice flies from his hometown. On the 30th (Korean time), the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Charles Schwab Challenge held at the Colonial Golf Course (par 70/7209 yards) near Fort Worth, Texas ($7.5 million in prize money) on the third day, with a 4 under par, leading the 1st stroke ( 15 under par 195 strokes). Jason Cochlock (above the United States) is in second place (14 under par 196 strokes), and Sergio Garcia (Spain) is in the last minute chase at third place (10 under par 200 strokes).
Spies tied 6 buddies and 2 bogies. The first hole, the first hole (par 5), opened the door early. After that, he swapped 2 buddies and 2 bogies and walked back and forth, and thinned out 3 gear nose buddies in the 13th, 15th, and 17th holes in the second half. ‘Awl iron shot’ with a green hit rate of 77.78% with a maximum of 333 yards long hit, and above all, an average of 1.64’salt water putts’ per hole showed power. It is an atmosphere of match play with Kokrak on the last day.
It’s interesting that Spice is uniquely strong on the Texas stage. Last month, Valero entered the resurrection mode after winning the Texas Open. Since the opening in July 2017, it has won 12th in total in 3 years and 9 months, and was tied for 3rd in the Masters, showing off its major competitiveness. On the 24th, it was a tie for 30th in the PGA Championship, and the’Career Grand Slam’ was destroyed, and it is rather intoxicating. He added confidence, saying, “I think I have a chance to win 2 wins.”
Kokrak is looking for a second win in his career following The CJ Cup in October last year. In 2019, Champ Daniel Burger (USA) was tied to 34th place (2 under par 208 strokes) after a 2nd over par. The second shot from the 7th hole (par 4) was caught in the greenside bunker, and a double bogie came out and had a hard time. In the Korean Legion, Kang Seong-hoon (34) cut four more shots and soared to 17th place (5 under par, 205 shots). Ahn Byung-hoon (30, above CJ Logistics) tied for 34th place.
