Wyndham Championship R3

Si Woo Kim two shots clear after three rounds in North Carolina

Round 1, Round 2, Round 4




South Korea’s Si Woo Kim holds a two-shot lead heading into the final round of the Wyndham Championship after coming agonisingly close to making two holes-in-one on day three at Sedgefield Country Club.


Kim, who won this event in 2016 and the prestigious Players Championship in 2017, holed out with an eight iron on the third hole and amazingly lipped out for another ace on the 12th on his way to a third round of 62 in North Carolina.

The 25-year-old tapped in from 14 inches for birdie on the 12th and picked up three more shots on the 15th, 16th and 17th to finish 18 under par, two shots ahead of Americans Rob Oppenheim and Doc Redman.



Oppenheim, who has a best finish of eighth from his 76 career starts on the PGA Tour, also carded a 62 which included an eagle, seven birdies and a solitary bogey on the last, while Redman returned a 63.

Former FedEx Cup winner Billy Horschel is three shots off the lead following a 65, with Jim Herman and Mark Hubbard on 14 under.


Open champion Shane Lowry was briefly part of a seven-way tie for the lead when he birdied the opening hole, but eventually had to settle for a level-par 70 to remain nine under.

Lowry began the week 131st in the FedEx Cup standings, with only the top 125 on Sunday advancing to the first play-off event, the Northern Trust, next week at TPC Boston.

The 33-year-old is currently projected to climb to 126th in the standings and has already made alternative plans if he does not make the play-offs.

“I’ve actually got a little trip planned with some friends in Rhode Island next week,” Lowry said. “Not that it’s a win-win, but at least I have something to look forward to if that doesn’t happen. We will play some golf, but not much.”
