Kim Seong-hyun continued to challenge the top 10 at the US Professional Golf (PGA) Tour Mexico Open (total prize money of 7.7 million dollars).
Kim Seong-hyun hit a 3 under par 68 in the 3rd round of the tournament held at Vidanta Vallarta (par 71) in Vallarta, Mexico on the 30th (Korean time).
He recorded 5 birdies and 2 bogeys.
With this, Seong-Hyun Kim, who recorded an interim total of 7 under par and 206 strokes, moved up the rankings by 9 places and tied for 23rd place.
He is three strokes behind the tied for 10th place players.
Kim Seon-hyung, who tied for 4th at the Shriners Children’s Open in October last year, seized the opportunity to enter the top 10 for the second time this season.ㅋㅋㅋ벳
Last year’s runner-up Tony Finau (USA) took the lead (19 under par, 194 strokes), while world No. 1 Yon Ram (Spain) followed suit.
Ram drove 10 birdies without a bogey that day, setting a course record for Vidanta Vallarta and a tie record for the lowest score in a round of his own PGA Tour.
Ram, who scored an interim total of 17 under par 196, was tied for second place with Akshai Bhatia (USA) and pursued Finau with a two-stroke lead.
If Rahm, the event’s ‘defending champion’, succeeds in his come-from-behind win, he will make his first title defense on the PGA Tour.
Ram has previously defended his title on the DP World Tour.
Noh Seung-yeol tied for 46th with a 5-under 208, and Ahn Byeong-hun tied for 66th with a 1-under 212.
