Mito Pereira (CHILE), who joined LIV Golf this year, is on course for his first victory.
Pereira carded 10 birdies and five bogeys for a 5-under 67 in the second round of the seventh LIV Golf event of the 2023 season ($25 million purse) at Trump National Golf Club (par-72) in Sterling, Virginia, USA, on 28 August.
At nine-under-par 135, Pereira took a one-stroke lead over Harold Varner III (USA), who led the day before, in second place.
Pereira has been playing on LIV Golf since leaving the United States Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour this year. He has no PGA Tour titles, but has three wins on the Con Perry Tour and one on the PGA Latin America. 토토사이트
He famously held a one-stroke lead at last year’s PGA Championship before a double bogey on the par-4 18th hole cost him the title.
Behind Varner III, compatriots Kevin Na (USA) and Henrik Stenson (SWE) are tied for third at seven under par 137.
