Steady Kang tightens grip on Korea Open
SEOUL: South Korea’s Kang Kyung-nam tightened his grip on the Kolon Korea Open with a two-under 69 yesterday, giving him a three-shot lead going into the weekend.
Kyung-nam is the only player to go two rounds under par at the Woo Jeong Hills Country Club course south of Seoul.
Alone in second place in the US$900,000 OneAsia competition is two-time champion Kim Dae-Sub, only recently discharged from 20 months of military service, who fired a 68 to go with his first-round 72.
Sharing third at level par are American Charles Hong Chang-Kyu (71-71) and Korean Choi Ho-Sung (71-71), according to a press release from organisers.
Y.E. Yang - the first player from Asia to win a Major - was a shot further back in fifth with Brazilian Lucas Lee. — AFP
