Kang Sung-hoon tied for 11th in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am (total prize money of $9 million) on the PGA Tour. He could have done better, but he was out of luck. On the 5th (Korean time), Kang Seong-hoon recorded only 4 birdies by the time he completed 10 holes in the 3rd round of the tournament held at the Monterey 스포츠토토 Peninsula Country Club (par 71, 6957 yards) in Pebble Beach, California, USA.
Considering that the course condition itself was the worst due to the strong wind, it was an outstanding result. However, the match was stopped during the third round due to strong winds of up to 64 km/h near the venue. It was a regrettable decision for Kang Sung-hoon. If the round had progressed to the end, a bigger opportunity could have come to Kang Seong-hun, who has a stable shot. Because golf is all about atmosphere.
Kang Seong-hun, who finished the 10th hole in the third round and is currently recording 7 under par, jumped 19 places from the top 30 the previous day. Kang Seong-hoon had tied for 17th in this event in 2016. Kang Seong-hoon, who appeared in four competitions in the 2022-2023 season and never passed the cut, was looking for a high-ranking prize.
Peter Malnuty (USA), who completed 12 holes in the third round, is tied for first place with 12 under par, while Keith Mitchell and Joseph Bramlett (both US) are tied for second place with 10 under par. Among Korean players, Ahn Byeong-hun (32) tied for 38th with a 3-under par, and Kim Seong-hyun (25) tied for 54th with a 2-under par.
In the amateur category, NFL player Aaron Rodgers took the lead with 25 under par, former NBA player Pau Gasol tied for 9th with 16 under par, and “Soccer Star” Gareth Bale tied for 15 under par. Ranked 16th.
Accordingly, the tournament decided to start the remainder of the third round on the 5th local time, and if the 72-hole game was not completed that day, the tournament would continue until the 6th, Monday, local time.
