Sihwan Kim gets into contention at the Rolex Trophy
South Korea’s Sihwan Kim fired a bogey-free eight-under par 64 on Thursday and surged to the share of the second spot at the Rolex Trophy, heading for the final two rounds of the limited-field Challenge Tour event.
The 2004 US Junior Amateur champion registered a top five finish last week at the ECCO Tour Championship and continued his impressive form in Geneva.
The opening round of the tournament saw him record seven birdies against a lone bogey for a six-under par 66. On day two, he managed to avoid bogey putts and sank eight birdies, to settle one stroke behind the leader Kristoffer Broberg.
According to him, the course conditions were tough during the second round and attacking the pins was relatively difficult. Yet, he managed to putt well and posted a good score on the leaderboard.
“If anything the pins were probably a bit tougher today than on the first day, but I putted so much better. The greens were very pure first thing this morning, so if you hit your putt on the right line, it’s going to drop”.
He also stated that he was not good with his putter last week in Denmark. Therefore, he focused mainly on his putting technique for this week’s challenge to improve his track record on the tour.
“I hit the ball well in Denmark last week without making that many putts, so I knew if I could get my putter going here, I’d have a good week,” he added. “You need to make a lot of birdies on this course if you’re going to win the tournament, so hopefully
my putter will stay hot”.
He now aims to challenge Broberg on top of the leaderboard by displaying a consistent game and list his name among the players who won at least one tournament in their rookie season.
In the meantime, Joachim B Hansen also joined him on the leaderboard after adding another 65 for a 14-under par overall score.
It seemed as if he copy pasted his first round stats on the second round’s scorecard. He managed to score five birdies and an eagle in each of the first two rounds.
