An keeping his cool

3rd August 2019, 10:07 by Jack Ogalbe

Byeong Hun An says he is staying in the moment after claiming a one-shot lead heading into the weekend at the Wyndham Championship.

The South Korean carded five birdies and avoided any blemishes to add a 65 to his opening 62 to help him move onto 13-under.

Brice Garnett is his nearest challenger a shot behind, with local hero and 2011 winner Webb Simpson part of a six-way tie for third in North Carolina.

While he won the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship in 2015, An has yet to break his duck in America.

The 27-year-old says he will not chase the win at Sedgefield Country Club and is instead happy to trust his form as he seeks that elusive maiden victory.

"I came close last couple years and, you know, maybe this week might do it," An said. "But still have two more days and there are a lot of players behind me.

"Just do what I've been doing the last couple days and just hit a lot of fairways and greens and make some putts. If someone plays better than me, then he deserves to win it, but as long as I keep these bogey-free rounds going."
