JT sails one 461 yards, Day draining putts & Kim in contention


Muscle up! A 461-yard drive, complete with a cart-path
assist?! Sign me up! On a tough and windy day on Jeju Island, the
South Koreans took advantage on Moving Day at the inaugural CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. But Justin Thomas’ opening round 63 still
held up through Saturday, despite showing he’s just one of us… A 353-yard drive over the green? Ok, I’m sure few of us can relate to that… But what happened next, might be familiar
territory though. That didn’t just happen once, he failed
to get on the green twice…. That my friends, is how you make double bogey,
despite driving the green. #GolfisHard and sometimes not fair. Check this out! Cameron Smith nails the flagstick on 18 and
then it bounces all the way out to the fringe… The scoring average on Saturday was just under
75, playing nearly 5-strokes harder than the opening round. Perhaps homefield advantage came in handy
for the likes of South Korean Whee Kim, who could win the first CJ CUP on his home turf. Kim sunk his lone birdie of the day from way,
way back on 10… Then had this stellar par save on the next
hole in front of friends and family… Speaking of lengthy birdies, Jason Day was
dropping his own… Will Justin Thomas notch his 3rd victory on
the Asia Swing in as many years, or will Whee Kim win the first CJ CUP in his home-country? Get all your updates from Jeju Island on PGA
TOUR social media and I’ll see you Monday for Trending On TOUR.
