Reporter Park Dae-ro = Lim Seong-jae (25) saved his hopes of entering the top 10 on the second day of the PGA Tour Genesis Invitational (total prize money of 20 million dollars). Tiger Woods, who is making a comeback after 7 months, has been criticized for playing a prank with a sanitary pad.
In the second round of the tournament held on the 18th (Korean time) at Pacific Palisades Riviera CC (par 71), California, USA, Lim Seong-jae hit 2 under par and tied for 12th place with a median total of 4 under par and 138 strokes.
Im Seong-jae, who was tied for 27th in the first round, caught 3 birdies that day, but committed 1 bogey.
Im Seong-jae said in an interview with the PGA Tour after the game, “Unfortunately, I did a bogey in the second half and the atmosphere was a little bad, but I made a birdie right away next time and I think I finished the second round today with a 2 under par.”
Lim Seong-jae continued, “Overall, I’ve been in the top 10 twice recently and have a good flow, and it would be great if I made use of that flow well this week to make the top 10.”

On the other hand, Kim Si-woo recorded a 5-over par, Lee Kyung-hoon a 7-over par, and Kim Young-soo recorded a 9-over par and missed the cut.
Tiger Woods (USA) fell to the bottom with a 1-over par.
Woods, who had a comeback match after 7 months, apologized for playing with a sanitary pad that day.
Woods was caught passing a sanitary napkin to Justin Thomas (USA), who played in the same group at the ninth hole in the first round. When his own tee shot flew farther than Thomas, he teased Thomas by saying he ‘hits like a girl’. When Thomas was handed a sanitary pad, he burst into laughter.
Although Woods explained that it was a joke after the game, he apologized, saying, “I’m sorry if I hurt anyone in any way.”
Max Houma kept first place for two days in a row with an interim total of 10 under par. Yon Rahm (Spain) is tied for second place with 9 under par, and Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is tied for seventh place with 6 under par.
