Lee Jung-hwan and Kim Min-soo co-lead KB Financial Live Championship 2Rs

Lee Jung-hwan (32, Team Sokchoi) and Kim Min-soo (33, Volvik) are tied for the lead after the second round of the Korea Professional Golf Association (KPGA) Korean Tour’s KB Financial Live Championship ($700 million in prize money).

Lee and Kim sit atop the leaderboard after the second day of play at the Blackstone Golf Club (Par 72) in Icheon, South Korea, with a combined score of seven-under-par 137.

Lee carded seven birdies and a bogey on the day to shoot six under par.

Lee, who has two wins on the Korean Tour, the 2017토토사이트 Kaido Series Kaido Golden V1 Open and the 2018 Golf Zone-DYB Education Tour Championship, will be looking for his third title in over five years.

“It’s my third year back from the military, and I’ve had a lot of problems with my swing. This season, I feel like I’ve found my swing since the training camp,” he said, adding, “I think I can win if I just play my game and not think about the scores of other players.”

Kim Min-soo carded five birdies and two bogeys on the day to shave three strokes off his first-round total and take the lead for the second straight day.

A ‘screen powerhouse’ with 10 wins in screen golf tournaments alone, Kim will be looking for his first win on tour at this event.

“I’m very happy to make my first cut of the season. If I play the remaining two days like I did today, I think I can finish with a good result,” he said. “It’s hard to play in field competitions because there are many variables unlike screen golf. I’m looking forward to the field competition.”

Behind the co-leaders, Bae Yong-jun (23-CJ) and Yeom Seo-hyun (32-DOHWEEDGA) are tied for third place, two shots back on a five-under par 139.
