South Korean Kim shares early second-round Wyndham lead

Rising South Korean star Kim Joo-hyung was all smiles again on Friday after firing a six-under par 64 to share the early second-round lead in the US PGA Tour Wyndham Championship.

Kim, who had battled back after opening Thursday with a quadruple bogey eight to shoot a 67, had a nine-under par total of 131 to share the lead with Americans Brandon Wu and Ryan Moore when thunderstorms halted play at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.

"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," said Kim, who admitted he felt a mild flashback at the first hole -- his 10th of the day -- where he again found himself in the bunker.

"I was like, well, here we go, just don't make a quad," he said. "I was like, let's just get this on the fairway.

"And I did. I hit a great shot to two feet," said Kim, adding he told himself: "You know what, this is strokes gained right here -- four shots better than yesterday.
