Si Woo Kim followed a course-record 60 with a six-under par 64 in the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C., on Saturday to take a four-stroke lead in pursuit of his first PGA Tour win.
Kim, a 21-year-old South Korean, completed 54 holes in 18-under par 192. Rafa Cabrera Bello of Spain posted a 65 to move into second place. Kim has never held a 54-hole lead. Last month, he lost to Aaron Baddeley in a playoff at the Barbasol Championship.
Cabrera Bello, an Olympian and one of the first-round leaders, is looking for his first career PGA Tour win, as well.
Jim Furyk, who shot the first 58 in PGA Tour history at the Travelers Championship two weeks ago, shot a three-under 67. A 62-foot eagle putt on the 15th hole put Furyk into a temporary tie for second with Kevin Na, but he bogeyed the 17th and 18th holes to move back to 13 under, five back of Kim. Na, who double-bogeyed the 18th hole, also is five back, as is Luke Donald.
Graeme McDowell shot a six-under 64 to move to 12 under. He is tied for sixth with Hideki Matsuyama, Billy Horschel and Brandt Snedeker.
Scott Langley had the best score of the day, an eight-under 62. He stands at 11 under and tied for ninth with Bill Haas, D.A. Points and Johnson Wagner.
Patrick Reed shot a six-under 64 to move to nine under for the tournament, while Rickie Fowler is tied for 26th at eight under.
