Joohyung Kim PGA Tour JoJo Championship 3R tied for 26th… Fowler in the lead

Kim Joo-hyeong (20) tied for 26th in the third round of the PGA Tour Jojo Championship (total prize money of $11 million).

Kim Joo-hyung hit a 3-under 67 with 5 birdies and 2 bogeys in the third round of the tournament held at Narashino Country Club (par 70, 7,41 yards) in Inzai, Chiba Prefecture, Japan on the 15th.

Kim Joo-hyung, who recorded a total of 5 under par 205 over three days, finished the third round with Xander Shopley (USA) in a tie for 26th.

Kim Joo-hyung, who achieved two tour victories at the Children’s Open on the PGA Tour, which ended in Las Vegas, Nevada on the 10th, tried to win the championship for the second week in a row with three wins in this tournament, but it was not easy to win.

This is because the 14-under 196 shot is 9 shots away from the solo leader Ricky Fowler (USA).

On the last 18th hole (par 5), it was a pity that the eagle putt, which was over 8m, slightly deflected to the right.

Fowler, who has not won a championship since February 2019, is the sole leader, one shot ahead of Keegan Bradley (USA).

Fowler won the Phoenix Open in February 2019 and achieved five tour victories.

Andrew Putnam (USA) is expected to compete for the championship on the last day, with Andrew Putnam (USA) taking the third place alone, two shots behind the lead with a 12-under 198 shot, and Victor Hoblan (Norway) finishing fourth solo with an 11-under 199 shot.

In addition to Kim Joo-hyung, as a Korean player, Kim Si-woo (27) recorded a 4-under-par 206, and tied for 31st with last year’s winner Hideki Matsuyama (Japan).

Kyung-Hoon Lee (31) is tied for 47th with a 2-under par 208, and Seong-jae Lim (24) is tied for 52nd with a 1-under-par 209.
