He is five shots behind leader Harry Hall (England – 12-under-par 128).

Ahn, who finished tied for fourth at the Fortinet Championship last September and tied for sixth at the Valero Texas Open earlier this month, is looking for his third top-10 finish of the 2022-2023 season.

After opening with a birdie on the first (par-5), Ahn bogeyed the fourth (par-3), but then birdied the seventh (par-4), eighth (par-3), 12th (par-4) and 13th (par-3).

Kim Si-woo, who was tied for seventh with Ahn Byung-hun in the first round, traded four birdies for four bogeys on the day and slipped to a tie for 19th (3-under-par 137).

Kyung Hoon Lee improved by one stroke on the day to move up from 22nd to 19th.

Lee Min Woo (AUS), Justin Seo (KOR) and Michael Kim (USA) made the cut in a tie for 28th place (2-under par 138).

Players who shot 1-over-par 141 after the second round also made the cut, with Sungjae Lim (KOR) missing out with a midday total of 2-over-par 142, tied for 73rd with Tony Finau (USA) and Tommy Fleetwood (GBR).

Kim Sung-hyun also missed the cut, finishing at seven-over-par 147.

PGA Tour rookie Hall, who led the field with eight birdies and no bogeys in round one, dropped four more strokes in round two to remain atop the leaderboard.

Harris English (USA) is second (9-under 131) and Emiliano Grillo (Argentina) is third (8-under 132).

Scottie Schauffler (USA) is tied for seventh (6-under-par 134) after dropping three strokes in rounds one and two.

‘Lesson Pro’ Michael Block (USA), who burst onto the scene last week with a tied 15th place finish at the PGA Championship, shot a much better four-over-par round than the previous day’s 11-over-par, but finished in last place with a total of 15-over-par 155.
