Mito Pereira (CHILE), who joined LIV Golf this year, is on track 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 Monday. With a 9-under par 135 total, Pereira moved into a one-stroke lead over Harold Varner III (USA), who led the day before, in second place.
Pereira left the U.S. Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour this year to play on LIV Golf. He has no PGA Tour titles, but has three wins on the Conferi (2nd) Tour and one on the PGA Latin America.
He famously lost the PGA Championship last year after holding a one-stroke lead until a double bogey on the final 18th hole (par-4) cost him the title.토토사이트
Behind Varner III, compatriots Kevin Na (USA) and Henrik Stenson (SWE) are tied for third at 7-under. Brooks Koepka (USA), who lifted the major championship trophy last week, is tied for 16th at 3-under.
