South Korean Sungjae Lim carded five birdies and three bogeys for a 2-under 68 in the second round of the BMW Championship, the second stop on the FedExCup, a playoff event on the U.S. Professional Golf (PGA) Tour, at Olympia Fields Country Club (Par 70) in Olympia, Illinois, U.S., on Monday (Sept. 19).
His four-under-par 136 total puts him in a tie for 10th place. He is six strokes behind leader Max Homa (USA). He also moved up to No. 18 in the FedExCup standings.
Byung-hoon Ahn, 32, who is trying to qualify for the Tour Championship, the final FedExCup event, shot an even-par first round and shaved three strokes off his score today with four birdies and a bogey. His 3-under-par total of 137 puts him in a tie for 13th place, and he will move up to 35th in the FedExCup standings.
Siwoo Kim is in a tie for 29th place at even par. His projected FedExCup ranking drops three spots to No. 20. Joo Hyung Kim, 21, lost two strokes and finished tied for 43rd with a median score of 4-over par 144. His FedExCup ranking dropped to 26th. The next two days will be crucial.
Homa shot an 8-under 62 with 10 birdies and two bogeys for a 10-under 130 total and a share of the lead. He hit 71.43% of his shots in the fairways and 88.89% of his shots on the greens.
“The greens are soft, so once you’re in the fairway, you can be as aggressive as you want. I feel like the tee shot decides everything. I know what McIlroy did yesterday, but he’s a little bit unique. I think I need to stay on the fairways.”
Chris Kirk (USA) is in sole possession of second place at 8-under 132, Matt Fitzpatrick (England) and Brian Herman (USA) are tied for third at 7-under 133, and Scottie Shaffler and Rickie Fowler (USA) are tied for fifth.
Rory McIlroy (Northern Ireland) is tied for fifth at 5-under par 135. He had one birdie and one bogey, a far cry from his clean play yesterday.
