Hole-in-one powers Kim to four-stroke lead in Texas

Adjust Comment Print

South Korean Kim Si Woo nearly aced the same hole for the second day running en route to a one-stroke lead over Canadian Corey Conners in the third round of the Texas Open on Saturday. He was at 15 under and Connors, trying to become the first Monday qualifier to win on the PGA Tour since 2010, was a stroke back after shooting a 6-under 66.

Overnight leader Kim (72) fell into a tie for fourth place with Brian Stuard (66) at 15 as a double-bogey and two bogeys halted his momentum.

He won the Waste Management Phoenix Open in February and was tied for second when Keith Mitchell sank a final-hole birdie to win the Honda Classic on the Florida swing.

"I'm happy with it", Fowler said of the round.

"To birdie the last two holes is really big for me right now as I'm looking to gain confidence under pressure and kind of test some of the stuff I've been working on", Spieth said, according to USA Today.

"(My) back nine (I played) much better, that's why I get closer to the pin", said Kim, who made five birdies in a span of six holes through No. 7 while finishing on the front nine. "That happens. I hit some good shots out there and made a few putts".

This week's Valero Texas Open is underway with Rickie Fowler leading the field after 16 holes. "That's why it was a pretty good back nine".

Corey Conners claimed his maiden PGA Tour title and secured a place in the Masters with a two-shot victory at the Valero Texas Open. This time I don't have the yips.

Spieth, who is without a top-10 finish since last year's Open Championship, was part of a large group a shot further back after five birdies and a solitary bogey in his 68.

He remained on track with a birdie at the 14th after getting up and down from a greenside bunker and, after holing a clutch 12-footer for par at the 15th, he notched another birdie at the par-three 16th where he almost took out the flag with his tee shot. I flushed it right up there.

Jordan Spieth has not recorded a top ten on the PGA Tour since the Open Championship past year but this week, back on a golf course on which he finished runner-up the last time he played the event, he is within striking distance heading into the weekend.

"So normally the better results come from the club starting to feel more in control".

Conners, who has yet to win on the PGA Tour since turning pro in 2015, started Round 3 extremely well at the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.
