Golf Betting Odds: Trio tied for the lead in North Carolina
It is all to play for at the Wyndham Championship in North Carolina this weekend, with Brandon Wu (11/1 Outright), Joohyung Kim (9/2) and Ryan Moore (12/1) all tied for the lead at Sedgefield Country Club.
Overnight leader John Huh (14/1) could not maintain his form from Thursday, following his first-round 61 with a 71, which means he will start Saturday’s round in T4 alongside (pictured) Russell Henley (11/2) and Sungjae Im (4/1).
Wu carded a second-round 67 to climb up two places on the leaderboard to move onto nine-under par, and into a share at the top.
Moore followed his first round of 65 with a 66 to join Wu, although it was Kim that made the most significant move on Friday as he fired a six-under 64 to jump 22 places to the summit, with the leading trio sharing a one-shot advantage going into the weekend.
Remarkably, Kim had started the tournament with a quadruple bogey on the first hole, but the 20-year-old seems to be handling the occasion well.
Kim has to win this weekend to qualify for the FedExCup playoffs, and he has shown some impressive form of late.
He finished third at the Scottish Open before claiming seventh at the Rocket Mortage Classic last time out.
When asked about his performance on Friday, Kim told the PGA Tour: “If you would have told me after the first hole yesterday where I’d be after two days, I definitely would have taken it, so pretty happy.
“It’s just one bad hole. Told myself, ‘You know what? I’ve got plenty of holes to bring it back if I just play well on my next 35 holes.’ And that’s exactly what I did. I played better than I thought I was going to, so it’s a bonus.”
Brian Stuard, Anirban Lahiri and Davis Riley are all tied for seventh on seven-under-par, while Andrew Putnam, Satoshi Kodaira, Blake McShea, Brett Drewitt and Martin Trainer are a shot further back in a tie for tenth.
