Whee Kim holds early advantage at Shriners Hospital for Children Open

Whee Kim holds early advantage at Shriners Hospital for Children Open”

South Korea's Kim Meen-Whee boasts a one-shot lead at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open after birdieing two of his final three holes.

Beginning on the back nine, Kim reached the turn in 33 and followed a birdie-three at the first with a 25-footer at the seventh before closing his blemish-free card with a gain at the ninth. "Didnt miss any putts". I think I didnt do any stupid mistakes all day. The greens were a little slower than what I expected like the last two years.

USA's JJ Spaun, Ryan Blaum, John Huh and Alex Cejka share second place, with Jimmy Stranger also there on five-under through 15 holes when play was suspended. "I think that was key", said Kim. "But it was still fast and firm".

Kim took advantage of a calm morning and completed most of his round before a breeze sprang up at the TPC Summerlin, the course where Tiger Woods recorded his first professional win in 1996. "It's a nice start". "I played really good, and my fans were really happy".

Despite the conditions late in his round, he was able to finish strong on his final six holes, picking up two birdies and scrambling for par at the hard, 239-yard par-3 eighth (his 17th).

Former Gator Billy Horschel was two strokes back at 67 with eight others, including Bryson DeChambeau.

Charley Hoffman opened his hometown event with a 68 after an eagle on the par-4 15th.

Billy Horschel and Daniel Summerhays are part of the group of 10 players on four under, with last week's Sanderson Farms Championship victor Ryan Armour a further stroke back.

Australia's defending champion Rod Pampling opened with a 70 as did compatriot Aaron Baddeley, while Geoff Ogilvy was a shot further back.
