Park Sang-hyun (40, Dong-A Pharmaceuticals) is on track to win for the second straight week.
Park shot a 3-under 68 with two bogeys and five birdies in the second round of the Baeksong Holdings-ASIAADCC Busan Open (KRW 1 billion) at the par-71 Asiad CC in Busan on Sunday.
At 13-under-par 129, Park held a three-stroke lead over the second-place group for the second straight day.
Park picked up his first win of the season at the Genesis Championship, which concluded on Friday. If he can win this event, he will have won two in a row.
If he completes that scenario, he will likely win his first career Genesis Grand Prize title, not to mention the season’s prize money. Currently, Park is fourth on the Genesis standings and second on the money list.
“I’m just as happy with my score today as I was yesterday,” said Park, who shot a career-low 61 in the first round. It was very windy in the morning and the pin placement was difficult, but I’m happy that I was able to reduce my score.”
Genesis Point leader Ham Jeong-woo (29-Hana Financial Group) dropped two strokes to sit in a tie for second place (10-under-par 132) with teammates Kwon Sung-yeol (37-BRIC) and Uhm Jae-woong (33).
Genesis Points runner-up Lee Jung-hwan (32-Team Sok Choi) also shaved three strokes off his score to move into a tie for seventh place (6-under par 136).
Korean compatriot Han Seung-soo (37-Hana Financial Group), who leads the money list, dropped two strokes to tie for 33rd (1-under par 141).
The winner of the tournament will receive an additional 200 million won in cash as a championship bonus on top of the 200 million won in prize money. However, the winner’s bonus will not count toward the seasonal money list. 짱구카지노 주소
