Kyung-hoon Lee is 5-under par on day one of PGA Tour’s WWT Championship
Lee Kyung-hoon is among the top 10 players after the first day of the PGA Tour’s Worldwide Technology Championship ($8.2 million purse).
Lee shot a 5-under 67 with seven birdies and one double-bogey in the first round of the tournament at El Cardonal (Par 72, 7,452 yards) in Los Cabos, Mexico on Wednesday (Sept. 3).
Lee finished the first day in a tie for 21st place as 10 players were forced to postpone the remaining holes of the first round to the following day due to sunset.
Lee, who has two career PGA Tour victories, has four top-10 finishes this season without a win.
His best finish was third at The CJ Cup last October. Last month, he tied for seventh at the Shriners Children’s Open.
After opening with a birdie on the 10th (par-4), Lee made a double bogey on the 12th (par-4) but recovered with four consecutive birdies on the 14th through 17th holes.
In the second half, he dropped one stroke on the first (par-5) and seventh (par-4).
Cameron Percy (AUS) led the way with a bogey-free round of eagles and eight birdies for a 10-under-par 62.
Korean-American Michael Kim (USA) shot an 8-under 64 and is tied for second with Camilo Villagas (Colombia), Nate Lashley (USA) and Tano Goya (Argentina).
Cameron Young (USA), the highest-ranked player in the field at No. 16, finished the first round in a tie for sixth place (7-under 65).
As the final event of the 2022-2023 season, the field was light on top-ranked players. There are three PGA Tour events left, the Bermuda Championship and the RSM Classic.
The course was designed by TGR Design, the course design firm of golfing emperor Tiger Woods (USA). 스포츠토토맨
