62


If Woo Kim is set to secure his third PGA Tour victory – and second at the Wyndham Championship – after carding an 8-under par 62 on Saturday that propelled him to the event’s solo leadership position through 54 holes. His third-round performance separated him from a tie at four at the top of the standings he shared entering the day with Talor Gooch, Billy Horschel and Tom Hoge. It’s his best run of the week and one stroke off the best run of 61, which Zach Johnson and Jim Herman both recorded on Saturday.Despite a bogey at # 7, Kim’s round was almost perfect from start to finish. He got through the third hole par 3 to start his day, then almost did the unthinkable with a hole-in-one offer on the No.12 who found everything but the bottom of the cup. He played the back nine without a bogey with four birdies, giving him a two-stroke lead going into Sunday.

On his tail are Rob Oppenheim and Doc Redman, who shot 62 and 63 respectively in the third set, both sitting in T2 at 16 under. Billy Horschel is 15 years younger while Jim Herman and Mark Hubbard are 14. Twelve golfers in total are within six strokes of the lead.

The Wyndham Championship winner in each of the past four years has reached at least 21 cents, including Kim’s 21 cents through four innings that brought him the test in 2016. A victory on Sunday would be Kim’s first since his victory in the three-year players’ championship. since. He finished T13 last week at the PGA Championship.
