South Korean Sung Kang claimed his maiden PGA Tour victory at the Byron Nelson Classic after a rain delay which meant him completing nine holes of the third round on the Sunday morning. He closed with a round of 67 after birdies at 8,9,10 and 16. He putted superbly all week, 2nd in the statistics in this category. But his stellar round on Friday ewas a -10 61 which had 10 birdies and no bogeys, something Jordan Spieth described as “absurd”.
Brooks Koepka’s 4th place in the event is another great showing going into his defence of the PGA Championship this week at Bethpage Black.
Kang previously hit the headlines at last year’s Quicken Loans tournament after a controversial drop which his playing partner and the ShotLink volunteer nearby insisted was taken nearer the hole than where the ball entered the hazard.
