Huh shoots career-best 61 at Wyndham; Steward in contention


Greensboro, NC — John Huh wasn’t expecting the lowest round of his PGA Tour career Thursday in the Wyndham Championship, and he had no complaints about the score or the timing.

Huh made seven of his eight birdie attempts from 10 feet or closer and holed a 40-foot eagle putt on the par-5 15th hole at Sedgefield for a 9-under 61, giving him a two-shot lead over Sungjae Im in the final tournament of the regular season.

“It’s kind of strange because like earlier I mentioned, I wasn’t really feeling great with my game and (to) shoot my career low, it’s kind of weird,” Huh said. “Sort of mixed feelings, but I’ll take this any day.”

Huh needed a round like this. He is No. 120 in the FedEx Cup – with some wiggle room because of the defectors to Saudi-funded LIV Golf – and only the top 125 advance to the lucrative postseason next week and are assured a full PGA Tour card for next season.
